During the 2+ hours it took to print the full-scale Yoda Lite at .2mm layer height the other day, I decided to power up the DSLR and LED light, and document the process. The result is this short video which includes many handheld macro shots of my Printrbot+ in action.
The music is Kenichi Ōkuma’s track for the Flat Zone 2 level of the Wii game Super Smash Bros. Brawl; A gratingly blippy tune1 that evokes 60s-era space age lounge. I wouldn’t normally use commercial music, but as far as I can tell this track is unavailable for purchase (at least in the USA), and it deserves some exposure outside of the 4-year-old video game for which it was composed.
- I use the word “grating” with much love, I admire the way the otherwise unpleasant beeps form a catchy tune. [↩]
