Since we have a new seminarweek coming up at ETH D-Arch Raplab, I am researching nice simple techniques for our students to quickly learn Blender. Here a little example on how to unwrap a cube, mark seams, animate and render the scene.

X-Carve Assembly Stop Motion

Two weeks ago I have finished the assembly of our Inventables X-Carve at ETH raplab. Since we are super busy at the moment giving workshop introductions to our wood and digital workshop I had no time yet to edit and upload the video…until now 🙂 Enjoy the little stop motion movie.

I still have to spend more time with the mill as soon as I have more time. I tested it using BlenderCAM and Chilipeppr, it went ok but some things responded a bit wonky in Chilipeppr. I also want to mount a Makita router to get more power…

Anyway, seeing Glen Kean, a traditional Disney animator with that grin in his face made my day. Check it out, what do you think about the future of storytelling?
