The 3D printed SLR camera, created by Leo Marius.

A design student has created a fully operational SLR camera using 3D printing.

The camera, called the OpenReflex, is a DIY camera that you build yourself after all the pieces have been printed out. It takes about 16 hours to print and put together, and costs around $30 for materials.

The camera is split into three parts, the film reciever, shutter and viewfinder. This makes it easy for adjustments and modifications to be made by the user if they wish.

The three pieces then clip together to create an SLR that can be used with virtually any lens. Designer Leo Marius is working on adding a true lens mount to the design.

For more information, take a look at Leo Marius' website.
