How do you make easy animatronic eyes for a mask or prop?
I saw the cool winner of the character makeup contest and thought it would be cool to add some animatric blinking eyes. Do you have a course how to make them for a usage like mine?
Matt Winston AdminHi Maximilian, Hobby level 3D printers are actually quite affordable these days, and you can find basic 3D Modeling CAD software online for free!
If you don't want to buy a 3D printer you can send your CAD files to a 3D printing service to print out for you, and you may be able to just buy the parts from someone else, as you mentioned. So you have lots of options!
Good luck with the project. We're excited to see how it turns out.
All the best, Matt5
Chris Ellerby AdminFor the lesson Matt listed I would suggest trying the CAD software Fusion 360. Also, you don't need to have your own 3D printer to work with 3D printed parts. There are 3D printing services that you can use to have your parts printed. Just keep in mind that you may need to order parts multiple times as you make adjustments. I would also suggest looking for a local makerspace that has 3D printers you can use.
here is a cool course, which shows the eye- animatronic from a to z.
We understand that you're feeling a bit overwhelmed by the complexity of the project, but learning to model and print parts on a hobby level 3D printer will be less expensive and far easier than investing in the machinery you would need to create the parts entirely out of metal.
We suggest you watch the lesson first to get an overview about what is required, and then make a decision about whether or not you want to take the leap and invest in the materials you will need. Hope that helps!
All the best,
its just an entire new project with modeling on the computer and working with electronic and I heard that 3D printers are very expensive. But it would be more than cool to bring something like that into a prop or mask if this works:)
i also heard that someone sells these part that you don’t have to model and print them... did you hear about that
