Digital Creators Club: Animation Project

I’ve been hosting a small lunch club for the last 4 years at Seaquam. It started as just a few students interested in learning about 3D printing but has evolved into a small 3d animation and modeling studio. This year we decided to create a demo reel of our work around a common theme: food!

Of course I agreed to make an animation too. Here’s my contribution to the club’s demo reel. I limited myself to only working on it for 10-15 minutes every Wednesday at lunch.

The full reel is still being edited by one of the students and will be posted soon.

Laser Cutting Project

A good friend of mine needed something to mount his lightsaber over his desk. Happy to have an excuse to use the laser cutter I offered to help. I asked for some basic dimensions and then quickly modeled a hook that could be easily cut from acrylic and assembled in two parts. This could also be done with 3D printing but I think the acylic has a much more refined look.

The final look turned out quite good! But I would use thicker acrylic next time. 3/16″ is just a bit too thin and I had to re-cut because it cracked when I tried to join the pieces.
