What’s more satisfying than being able to 3D print stuff? Watching it happen.
If you’re at all familiar with what goes into the 3D printing process, you know just how long it takes. But now, thanks to timelapse video, you can watch objects appear as if they’re being created out of thin breath.
There is something intensely delighting about reading the inner structures that fortify 3D prints come to be in an virtually fluid-like motion. Take this headless knight: Watching the wavy weavings is so bizarrely mollifying, it doesn’t matter that it takes more than one try.
This next video gazes straight out of some futuristic Disney Channel program, like Smart House or Phil of the Future . The borderline-eerie music actually adds to the overall experience. You’ll feel like Zenon: Girlfriend of the 21 st Century em> watching this vase stage in out of nowhere.
This moon city video imparts off similar vibes( with some different music ). Especially pleasing is the effect of the platform slowly descending rather than the 3D printer building up.
The two clocks in this video represent only how lengthy a process a 3D publish of this sizing actually is. The reality that the matter is castle is also the equivalent of the Barbie Dream Home for kids who grew up liking medieval fantasy novels is just an added bonus.
As technology improvements, every kind of 3D publishing are evolving as well. For instance, here’s a video of a 3D publish being made out of a vat of resin. Sure, it seems a little bit slimy and gross, but at the same occasion, it’s undeniably cool.
This lighthouse, as seen in the video game Elder Scrolls , was so massive it had to be built in three stages.
As technology improvements and 3D printers become more accessible, we can only hope that more printing timelapses will come along with it. It’s a little bit of magical right before your eyes.
