I Can't Stop Watching This 3D Printed Spiral Cube Time Lapse
I stumbled upon this 3D Print on Thingiverse from Caphector and I am so glad I 3D printed and created a stop motion time lapse of the model The first and last few frames are so cool to watch. I used Silver PLA+ and I am sure I will be coming back to this color again in my future time lapses/stop motion prints.
New to 3D Printing and need some help? I offer a variety of 3D printer classes on my website https://3dprintedteacher.com/courses/3d-printing-classes-online/ My newest class is a self-paced course for young 3D printer owners age 9-13 that would like to learn how to get the most out of their 3D printing journey.

How time lapse 3D Printing Works
After each .2 MM layer( That is barely thicker than a sheet of paper!) the 3D printer pauses, moves the extruder to the rear of the printer, takes a photo and then continues the print giving the illusion of the print appearing from thin air. This is essentially a stop motion video of the entire print shrunk down to a few seconds.

Print and Filament Details
This video was filmed using Octoprint connected to a Raspberry Pi B with a 1080P Webcam. My printer is a trusty Creality Ender 3 Pro that can be purchased these days for around $200. Total print time was around 4 Hours with each layer set to .1MM. This print used Silver PLA Filament available on Amazon.com
