Tioh,
Could anyone down load the file and then go over to shapeways to get it printed or would that be an infringement on your ownership of the file?

I am curious as well.

I put them on Thingiverse under Non-Commercial Creative Commons license. You can download and print them for your own use - as long as you do not sell them. You can scale them to any size you want.


This is just the first basic model there will be more complicated parts in the future. If anybody wants to buy them I could upload them on Shapeways.

Not sure how to read that in regards to Shapeways.

I uploaded the models to shapeways and made them public - anybody should be able to order them:

https://www.shapeways.com/model/1608595/dog-nose-for-plushies-or-puppets.html?li=my-models&materialId=6

I think I should redo some of the models for Shapeways as the use more material when necessary and Shapeways charges for that. It should be possible to make the models cheaper by reducing the wall thickness and adding some holes (where nobody can see them).

After uploading my files to Shapeways I found this:
https://www.shapeways.com/model/833922/animatronic-puppet-eye-kit.html?li=search-results&materialId=6

It's more complex than my design and looks really well made.

Thanks Tioh!  I kind of figured it was better if you uploaded them there. Smiley

Yes we have seen (at least I have) the one you found but was not sure about it. It looks really cool but was not sure if it came with the lids colored and if you had control over that.  I posted a link to that one over at FB and some folks are interested in it and may give it a try. Hopefully if they do they will give feed back.

I do hope you'll keep developing your versions though. The advantages with that is we know who you are and if we have questions about how it all goes together we can ask. That is one thing I did not like about the other one is there was really no way to communicate with the up-loader. Yes you can leave comments but they seem to not be replying.

Simple handle for a Bowden Cable:


That's what I use to control the ears and eyelids.

WOW!! looks like there have been some really cool things going on with you guys!! I really love the 3d printed eye mechs that you have come up with Tioh and I love the little handle you have created for cable mechs, I use quite a lot of these sort of handles, but usually make them myself (not as fancy as yours tho!) and I am quite interested in downloading one of yours and trying it out. where do your fingers sit on the handle though? could I request a picture of you holding the handle, just so that I can see it more clearly?? mine usually are quite short and wide so that my fingers effectively are either side of the cable with the end of the handle in the crotch of my thumb and my fingers pull/curl in a 'v' shape.
Thanks,
Ben.

I use the controls (the ones that I only have to push) like this:

This way I can use three of those in one hand.

awesome, thanks for letting us see the size of the handle, its the perfect size (as you've said) to have a few of these in one hand.

You make such gorgeous creations!!

My first 3d-printed puppet head. The hinge to the lower jaw is made of felt and wonderflex (it stays open by itself - I used a clothes pin to close it for the photo). The ears are made of felt too. It took 6 hours to print the plastic parts (printed in PLA glued together with Plaast) - I did not print the nose yet. I won't release this model.

Very cool! I can understand why you would not want to release a full model. I do hope you'll keep us updated on this build... perhaps you've already posted about it in another thread.  You are going to make every puppet builder want to go out and buy a 3d printer. Smiley
