I agree. The assembly of the camera is quite impressive especially since the parts were made from a 3D printer. One feature that puzzles me is the touch panel. What functions does it allow the user of camera to perform? I'll read the writeup to see if that information is provided.
Cadman-LT, there's been a lot of press about that recently. Clearly, it has to do with specific materials and temperatures, but I'd guess it may also have to do with performing what are industrial operations by inexperienced people in limited, probably unventilated spaces.
I used a 3d printing and laser cutting making hub, so i can't give you the exact time needed, but based on earlier experience, 3d printed parts are small so i think 3-4 hours, and maybe the same for the laser cut.
Ever wanted to see light beyond what's detectable by the human eye? You can with DOLPi - a homemade Raspberry Pi-based polarization camera. You can even use it to detect unseen objects like landmines, IEDs, pollutants, and maybe even UFOs.
