Now this is totally unrelated to 3D printing but since we do a lot of timelapse videos I though I would share this link.


It would be nice to have a clean continuous moving print head that just add layers after layers instead of blurred or scattered print heads.

    I contacted one of the member of the research team and he was kind enough to reply and suggest to look at "motion denoising" instead. Hyperlapse is really focused on camera stabilization and would not really change much in this kind of timelapse.


    I wonder if there are any implementation of this somewhere.

    I love timelapses one very cool stuff with what you suggest can be done with a classic timelapse if you're printing in Spiralize mode, like i did here:

    The timelapse here is quite slow (something like 12pics/sec). I'm shooting the pics with my RaspberryPi and Raspicam and i use a free software to make the video. I'll dig the internet to find something like what you showed would be cool to make the print look like it grows and have something less shaky

    Yes that was one of the reference video I sent to the research team :D

    Maybe the easiest way to do this is to shoot a regular video and to accelerate it.

    In my case in the video it happens that the pics where taken every 20 seconds (i think) and that it was a bit longer than the multiplier time for a layer, let's say the layer took 4.1 seconds to complete i'd take a pic every 5 layers but the head looks a bit further.

    yes that was how I did mine. Regular video and echo the frames.


    The result is different... but become blurry on the print it self. I could have masked the echo with some work but my pc is getting a bit old and doesn't handle a lot of processing anymore :(

    let's say the layer took 4.1 seconds to complete i'd take a pic every 5 layers but the head looks a bit further.

    that works only if your layers are all the same length.

    Yes that's why it's probably doable only in spiralize mode with vases...

    It's true that your video gets a bit blurry the result is different than a regular timelapse maybe it's too fast or indeed software tweaking could reduce the echo as you said

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
