The manufacturing of ultra small parts for space cameras, transmitters, and motors is becoming a major mission of 3D technology.  Once these products are put inside a CubeSat, you will have a fully functional and sophisticated research vessel at a reasonable price.  I wonder if AMSAT is considering something such as this.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
