Testing the 3D printable winders

Started this discussion. Last reply by Mohsen Minouei Apr 12. 2 Replies

Here is a quick video I made to compare two winders, one with an all-metal rack and the other which is fully 3D printed with a rack reinforced with an M6 threaded rod.Continue

3D printable winders for stop motion

Started this discussion. Last reply by James Krysa Mar 30. 1 Reply

I have been involved with beta-testing a new product, a fully 3D printable set of winders for stop motion animators. I think they are really well-designed and a proper tool for animating. At $20 for…Continue

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Charles Jimenez's discussion How do I show my final exposures/final rendered images in my x-sheet while I am animating on Dragonframe?
"Hmm. To capture in DF you have to press the button in DF, not a camera remote timer. So ideally you would need their wireless remote controller, and when you press that button to take a frame, it will capture what it sees at that moment. I have done…"

"Hi there. I'm the Simon James mentioned above... Brass is softer than steel and will wear more, but many people think it makes a smoother joint. Aluminium is probably one to avoid as it has a tendency to get a rough surface in contact with…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Sean Meagher's discussion Good camera with recording capability?
"A lot of people seem to be going for the Sony cameras. But Dragonframe stil reckon that a Canon body with manual Nikon lenses works best for stop motion. What you are asking is whether there is a camera that does everything well, and the answer is…"

"An excellent method is to silver solder a 3mm nut onto the outside of the bigger tube, having drilled a 3 mm hole through first. Then run a tap carefully through it to make sure it is clear, and fit a grub screw."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Mark Francombe's discussion Stop Motion Stage hints?
"I don't think this matters, as you will be using 1/32 microsteps, which can be dialled in on the boxed drivers I showed you. The steps are so tiny that it is pretty much impossible to see the movement if it is one step. My DF Arcmoco usually…"

"My favourite was the tennis racquet on the head, but I loved the tree with its single leaf popping out, a real laugh out loud moment. And some great expressions."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Mark Francombe's discussion Stop Motion Stage hints?
"You have identified the reason why a jib arm can be so useful, because it can be balanced with weights on the back, but as you say not cause the whole rig to move in towards the playing area. Except that a jib arm still requires a moving dolly…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Dylan Dreher's discussion Lens Filters and Extension tubes
"I would advocate playing with the lighting, use gels over the lights and just experiment to get something that is pleasing and interesting. You could try those RGB LEDs that will allow you to get different colours."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Mark Francombe's discussion Stop Motion Stage hints?
"Hi Mark These are lines that I have also been thinking along. Let me say first up that I have not made anything with two steppers, but cannot see why it should not work. The Arduino sends a message to the driver, which translates it into…"

"Very interesting and amazing! 3D printers can produce any piece with different resistance (such as J750 Stratasys with PolyJet technology)"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Mark Francombe's discussion Stop Motion Stage hints?
"Hopefully we can continue the discussion sometime. The idea of having a bunch of 3D printable parts that can be assembled with stock extrusions and bearings etc into a working rig would, I think, be attractive to quite a number of people. Even…"

"What I meant by not that easy is that I was unable to find something off-the-shelf that suited my needs exactly, so controlling up to 6 axes/stepper motors via the Arduino sketch and DF. The Black Box you linked to is effectively 4 drivers in a box.…"
