3D Printing Brings an Ancient Camera to Life

3D Printing Brings an Ancient Camera to Life
Photographer Aaron Foat had a serious problem: he had obtained a classic No. 1a Pocket Kodak camera, circa 1905, in perfect condition. It was is such good shape that it could take pictures. 
 
If only he could buy the long-unavailable Kodak 116 film for it.

Determined to succeed, Foat contacted his local makerspace, AssentWorks, and with the help of some interested folks there, he was able to design and 3D print specialized adaptors that enabled the use of still-available 120 film in the 116 camera. 
 
Read Foat’s lengthy description of his 3D print journey at the link below. 
 
We believe the experience Foat underwent could become far more typical in the near future, as access to 3D printers becomes commonplace. Fortunately, the required part was relatively straightforward to design in 3D modeling software; more complex shapes could have proven more difficult for novice 3D modelers.
