Re: 3D printer or lazer cutter inspiration...

My nephew made his own 3D printer using open-source plans off the Internet - how cool is that? Look up RepRap if you want to learn more. Anyway, the only little project I had off the top of my head was having him make a couple rear lens caps for old Konica AR lenses. I had to provide a 3D computer model - something I drew up myself based on a single cap I had on hand.

New custom caps turned out pretty well - not as pretty as the real deal, but certainly fully functional. Fun learning project for us both anyway.

If I was to get more ambitious, I would try and make some components for a fiber-optic kit-flash to ring-flash adapter that others have demonstrated on this thread.
