|stop motion mount for iphone [message #46865] Thu, 12 April 2012 17:09 UTC
hi guys |
so heres my latest model:
printing in WSF
its a mount for an iPhone 4 / 4s that will ideally be used by low budget stop motion fans
(although saying that i havent uploaded the model yet so not sure how much it costs)
it rotates incrementally in two separate axis (axes?) (up+down, left+right) and can be held in these positions (with hopefully, a good degree of accuracy) by means of posts that inhibit free movement. (mechanism not shown in images)
there are 4 holes that are design to fit M5 bolts for attaching to heavy base or dolly.
i plan to adapt this idea to fit a generic tripod.
the extra bits that protrude from the base are to be removed post print, to fill gaps and restrict movement on various parts of the model. so to allow for smoother shots
the rotation (left to right) is made possible by the bearing in the base. (see pics)
each ball bearing has a .7mm gap between neighboring parts. is this enough for mostly enclosed pieces?
.if anyone has any experience with stop motion. ........
there are 80 teeth on 2 wheels (each wheel controls 1 axis of movement ........every time a wheel is turned the camera will rotate 4.5 degrees in the chosen axis.
my question is..........is this too much rotate between photos?
i plan to get this printed then send it to someone with experience in stop motion to see if they would like to test it, if your interested and have examples of your work, feel free to contact me
sorry for poor resolution in image still trying to figure that out. its been shifted between SW, PS and AI.
oh and i forgot to change the floor plane for rending so the model doesn't just cut off at the back like that
think that's it
