Blooms: Strobe Animated 3D Printed Sculptures

—————————————————————–

According to John Edmark, ” He is an inventor and designer who teaches at Stanford University has designed 3D printed sculptures called blooms that animate when spun and lit by a strobe light. These sculptures can be used to create fascinating animations using a video camera with a fast shutter speed.  The 3D printed sculpture is rotated at a particular speed synchronized with the shutter speed of the video camera that captures a picture every time the object turns by a particular angle.  As a result, fascinating animations are created as shown in the videos below.  These designs are available for printing from Shapeways.  A turntable and a strobe light are needed to animate a bloom.  Generating an animation using a bloom is similar to Zoetrope.  The number of spirals on each sculpture is always Fibonacci numbers.  Therefore these are also called Fibonacci Zoetropes”.:)

According to the Shapeways, “Victoria Secret partnered with Shapeways to 3D print “angel wings.”  Shapeways scanned a model’s body and 3D printed the wings layer by layer using Nylon.  The angel wings were worn by Victoria’s Secret model Lindsay Ellingson at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show”.:)
