OpenReflex 3D Printed Camera: DDDSLR


Last year Leo Marius blew minds when he shared OpenReflex, an open source and affordable 3D printed SLR camera. Leo is now raising funds to help him improve his design, and in return you can get a ready to assemble OpenReflex kit.

The camera has three main 3D printed parts: the 35mm film compartment, the mechanical shutter and the viewfinder. You’ll also need a few tools and other non-printable parts for the camera, such as a laser cutter, a glass cutter and even a fingerboard truck for the shutter. It’s definitely a task for experienced makers, but come on, did you think building your own SLR was even possible?

You can check out Marius’ guide on Instructables and the camera’s 3D files on Thingiverse. Alternatively, you can pledge at least €80 (~$109 USD) on KissKissBankBank to receive a ready to assemble OpenReflex kit as a reward.
