It's been more than two years since I've launched in web one of the most sold 3D printed cameras in market.
As proved by tons of photos, this is a really functioning camera which is ten-times (or more) cheaper compared to standard ones. This is has enabled hundreds of nostalgic photographers to take large format or panoramic photo without spending a fortune.
Addictive manufacturing allows custom design which would fit the majority of good lenses yet in market.
I’ve sold and manufactured few hundred cameras and it was really exciting for me.The orders are increasing more and more – and now – since it is a second job for me and I have no free time to invest – I’m not able to continue with this journey.
I’ve already tried several times to transfer knowledge, dedication and everything is needed to keep this business up – but, at the end of the course I did not find anyone (expert in photography and 3D Printing) ready to ride this business.
So, with this message, very sadly, I’m going to suspend the sale of these camera, but:
I will continue to work the pending orders
I will continue to support my customers with advices, feedbacks or physical replacements. I won’t close the site in any case.
For those who want to get this camera, I sell the STL models, so that anyone (who has a 200USD 3D printer) can print and assemble his own camera (for sure I will give all the info about) – or dealing with any online printing service (i.e. 3DHUBS).
If anyone of you is interested in this business wants to build and sell these camera - I can provide all CAD models, manufacturing tips and grant Intellectual Property at very reasonable cost (please write me if interested).
