Hi All,

Anybody got any info about how Paranormans Eyes work and what theyre made of?

Ive watched all the featurettes I can watch and while it shows the eyes in plenty of them Im still not sure of the full workings of them. It looks like the eyelids stay in there and are hinged maybe but I cant make out how the eyeballs stay in there? it also says that the eyeballs are moved around with an exacto knife, I would have thought this would scratch the paint on the eyeballs?

If anyone knows anything about them Id love to know too!!!

Thanks,

Paul

What is a 3dm file?  I downloaded it to my Mac, extracted the zipped file with The Unarchiver, but got message that I had no software able to open the file.  Is it some kind of 3d object for use in a 3d program?  

Ok, found it as an export option for objects in Lightwave 3d, so I guess it is a 3d object.  But I was unable to import this file, got a file error message.  Might be a more recent version than my copy of Lightwave.  Or maybe it can export but not import that format.  I don't know what program uses 3dm as a native format.

Did some googling -  http://fileinfo.com/extension/3dm

It is a Rhino 3d model, can be opened by McNeil Rhino and Autodesk Fusion on Windows, McNeil Rhino OSX and IMSI TurboCAD Deluxe V8 on a Mac.  Looks like a CAD format... possibly for 3d printing?  Not something I know anything about.

If anyone has either Rhino or Fusion, could you please export a version in either an autocad or sketchup friendly format. Or maybe an STL or OBJ or something?

Either way, thanks again for the file!

Hi guys, 

Printed out eye mechanism for stop motion puppet eyes inspired by the Laika model! This is roughly how it works, printed at 2x actual size !

Thank You for the file Demian, I've been using it for my puppet, and it works really well.

Hi Bharoto (or anyone else who has used the 3D printed eyes from Damien's file) 

I have managed to 3D print them out in small parts but finding it very difficult to assemble them together with small nuts and bolts. For nuts and bolts I am using very small M1 and M2 nuts used for watches and spectacles. I have been given one multipurpose screw driver with the nuts but they all so small that it's very difficult to use them effectivly. 

Any idea how can I solve this problem?



Thanks!
