Making 3D printed winders

Hi folks!Here's a video I have made on assembling the 3D printable winders from Friendly Beans, which I recently reviewed and tested: .…Continue

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 madrobot's discussion What image size do you import from camera?
"Not sure you would want to be editing in 4K, unless you are getting a super powerful water-cooled PC. The free version of Davinci Resolve will not handle 4K, although if you pay for the full version it can. Having said that, it makes sense to…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Zed S.'s discussion Best Mold material for Silicone Cast?
"Great info, Ethan! But let's hear it for good old Ultracal, or Crystacal R. You can certainly take multiple casts from a decent plaster mould. It is cheap, fairly low hazard, dust being the major irritant. And it is relatively easy to get good…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Silver's discussion Water animation with resin replacements?
"If you are doing waves, try using clear acrylic rods, with plastic or sparkly thread wrapped round it diagonally, then rotating the rods each frame to get the motion."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Silver's discussion Water animation with resin replacements?
"I have been playing around with a 3D printer recently, and you can get clear filament, which actually comes out rather similar to aerated water, so it might be possible to make splashes and print them out. But you have to be able to design them in a…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Joseph Brett's discussion Pouring platsil 10 too thick
"For filing the head mould I actually used a funnel and a piece of dowel that would then force the silicone into the mould. Obviously the top of the syringe/funnel/tube has to be higher than the highest point of the item.  There is no way that…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Joseph Brett's discussion Pouring platsil 10 too thick
"Nick has covered a lot of it. I prefer Platsil gel00 for heads, but it too is quite thick to pour. My solution is a little deadener to thin it, and some retarder so it takes longer to set and allows air bubbles to rise. But I also use Nick's…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Mark Francombe's discussion Stop Motion Stage hints?
"Hi Mark Sorry I missed your latest posting on this thread. If you wish to continue to have a chat with me elsewhere, can I suggest you go to my FB page @OddPlanetStudios and message me from there? Anyway, to some answers. Torque is very important as…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Dave Cooley's discussion Moving water in a scene
"Then it is looking really really good! I suppose you could always make the boat larger rather than reducing the size of the waves...."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Shigeru Okada's discussion fixing the puppet with screws
"You can work out the length of the puppet's stride, the time duration of the shot and where you want the starting and end points to be. If you rehearse the shot with key positions you can then mark and drill your hold down holes."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to animator15648's discussion Need help (upgrading light setup)
"The LED lights are good, but a little word of warning. If you dim them a long way down, they can become less stable and introduce flicker. At high brightness levels they usually will not. Especially if you use long exposure times. I am using a mix…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Shigeru Okada's discussion fixing the puppet with screws
"If you know what position the screw goes in, then you can just drill straight through the baseboard and fasten it from underneath. I use long M3 or M4 bolts with a wing nut to hold down the foot. If you can see the holes in shot after the puppet has…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Georgia Madden's discussion Salt Lamp Sub?
"Just wondering if sugar might do the job. You could experiment by adding drops of food colouring perhaps or cooking it until it caramelizes. Then you could get it into a lump while it is still molten. You might then be able to nibble away bits of it…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Dave Cooley's discussion Moving water in a scene
"Getting to be really nice looking. One comment, although you are probably no concentrating on the boat at th moment. It should rock from wide to side once the wave goes under it, and should generally have some movement I suggest floating. Once the…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Dave Cooley's discussion Moving water in a scene
"Nearly missed this thread! Really interesting to see what you are doing, as I have a lake to animate sometime. I liked the slats with the uneven front edge - perhaps moving it slightly sideways would also help to make the wave look less rigid? One…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to StopmoNick's discussion Harryhausen 100 tribute
"Wonderful. Truly a colossus.  And yes..."It's just the pictures that got small". How true."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Scott DaRos's discussion Color Management
"At least there seem to be lots of YouTube tutorials on colour grading in Resolve! (If you have time...) Good luck!"
