I agree, Rob. Fifteen hours to print and an hour to assemble is better than I expected. Cool story.

GTOlover, good point. It's been awhile since I took pictures with my analog Olympus and tried to get them printed. A quick web search on "film developing" tells me the drugstore chains still do that. Also, there are still professional photographers who use non-digital cameras to do things that still can't be done with digital ones, so there must still be at least some professional photo labs around.

Thanks Rob--that's pretty funny: "Gadget Freak videos that take nearly as long to download as this camera takes to print." Yes, I'm pretty sure you need to watch the printer during the whole process.

I know the film and developing can still be done, but my how it has shrank! I remember the day when you found this stuff everywhere. Doubt that this will revive the analog film market.

The next generation should be to print a digital camera. Or at least the frame as the insides would have to be made conventionally.

I agree, far911. The idea of sharing design changes is also a nice feature: crowdsourcing for camera improvements.

Impressive stuff indeed. I'm glad 3D printing is making its way down to the educational level by allowing young minds experiment with the technology and come up with new ideas.

Very impressive, Ann. Actually, I think that's pretty good time considering the complexity of a camera. Heck, I've seen Gadget Freak videos that take nearly as long to download as this camera takes to print. If you don't have to babysit the printer, 15 hours isn't so long. But I would guess you have to hang around the printer for each individual part.

The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
Cal Poly students use 3D printing to take flight -- and pass their class.
