Hyperlapse

Recommended Posts

Sup!

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 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

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

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
