You normally open them by breaking them in half.  There isn't room in
the cart design for an opening mechanism with appropriate light seals;
 there's basically no chance of makerbotting one either, because the
required wall thicknesses are very thin.  So, yeah, good luck with
that.

You also need the sprocket holes (which don't actually get used to
wind the film on-  it's there to actuate the shutter cocking lever).
When I reloaded them back in about 1998 I had to make a machine to
punch the holes, which was a colossal pain in the arse.
