My 3D Print Won’t Stop Looking At Me! | 3D Printed Optical Illusion Time Lapse On Creality CR-10 S4

3D Printed optical illusions, one look at my channel and you’ll see I love to 3D print them. This optical illusion model by francfalco on Thingiverse is one of my favorites of all time. I 3D printed this in silver glossy PLA for an awesome shine. I admit the near overexposure in the middle of the time lapse was a mistake but I actually love the effect!

This is my first time lapse on my CR-10 S4. With a heated bed that measures 400 x 400 x 400, I will be printing some huge models. Please subscribe to see my upcoming 3 foot tall 3D printed Groot time lapse. He is amazing!

New to 3D Printing and need some help? I offer a variety of 3D printer classes on my website 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 Prints Work
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.
