    The 120 back for the camera has already been printed out and tested when i had access to a 3d printer before i moved. My goal is to design a camera with minimal non printed parts as possible. So far you'll only need 4 non printed parts, 2 springs, the bellows and a remote shutter release cable. But I plan to design one without the need for the shutter release cable so you could make the camera at home without buying anything you couldn't get at a local hardware store.

    I'm sorry—WHY is this a good idea?

    Seems to me that medium format pinhole cameras may be made from Ansco/Agfa folders with an aperature plate replacing the glass elements—or use a Holga for the film transport portion.

    And its medium format; whats with THAT?

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!
