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.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
