LED Desklamp Hack

Le Tue 28 November 2017

This is a simple project to upgrade some cheap LED desklamps for use in stopmotion. The upgrade gives them variable brightness and removes the rechargable battery packs so they can be supplied from any external power supply.

3D Printed Railway Bogie Sets

Le Mon 02 October 2017

I have in mind a couple of projects to create some kit-bashed railway vehicles based on Maisto die cast models. Two 3D printed bogie sets are described here as stand-alone models that can be adapted to any 1:24 scale model or in the case of the narrow gauge bogie model, a rail vehicle that is compatibile with my mine trolley and mine truck designs.

Another 3D Printed Mine Truck

Le Sun 17 September 2017

After making several of the previous Mine Trucks, I decided that putting the buffers together was pretty tedious. There was also the risk of the axles not being aligned aligned too well when using the seperate side components. So the solution was to modify the design slightly so the buffers were printed as a single piece as were the two side panels with the axle end sockets. This page is just a description of the modified design and the new model download links.

A Stop Motion Calculator

Le Thu 31 August 2017

My stopmotion animation skills are pretty awful. I tend to find I move objects far too much between frames. In order to try to create the illusion of motion appropriate for the size of the object being animated, I designed a calculator. There is a spreadsheet version and a Python version. Input the target speeds and accelerations and this calculator works out how far you need to move the object each frame taking account of framerate and scale. Both tools put out a table with the frame numbers, times, and distance to move the object for each frame.

A 3D Printed Mine Truck

Le Sun 20 August 2017

I enjoyed the Mine Trolley Prop project a great deal, so I was keen to make some more things in the same style. This mine truck is the result. It is a 3D printed chassis that can be used for any type of rail mounted truck or wagon. The gauge is the same as the Mine Trolley Prop.

A 3D Printed Mine Trolley Prop for Stop Motion

Le Thu 22 June 2017

Think Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Hoodwinked, and maybe some spy vs spy and you have an idea of what I have in mind for this model. It is predominantly 3D printed but the top "crate" was made with iceblock sticks.

A 3D Printed Flying Saucer

Le Thu 04 May 2017

I had a desire to create a small flying saucer for a Stop motion animation exercise I have in mind. This page describes the model and provides links to the model files for anyone wishing to 3d print their own version of this.
