Amazing resource! How to make animatronic eye mechanisms – Design, 3D Printing and Assembly from the Stan Winston School of Character Arts:
Stan Winston Studio veteran and key mechanical effects designer at leading Creature FX studio, Legacy Effects, David Covarrubias (Avatar, Iron Man, The Lost World: Jurassic Park) shows you how to design, 3D print and assemble an animatronic eye mechanism using free CAD software and an affordable 3D printer.
In this innovative tutorial, you’ll learn how you can begin your adventures into animatronics without the need for the expensive machinery usually required to shape metal: C&C mills, water jet metal cutters, lathes, etc.
The resulting 3D Printed Eye Mechanism is as elegant and effective as those created by Covarrubias for Hollywood blockbusters, but can be achieved at a fraction of the cost.
