Time-lapse video of test hexagon.

A few people have asked me if I would make a short time-lapse movie of something being RepRapped. So, thank you for the inspiration. I finally got round to it on the second attempt, after earlier borrowing a higher quality camera that unfortunately lacked macro focus:

The object is a standard 20mm (approx) test hexagon, 5mm (quite accurate) thick, extruded from CAPA. There are approximately 2.5 seconds per frame. I used a Linux script of my own devising and a Logitech 320x240 webcam clamped to the base board, which I will document and GPL if anyone is interested. Donations of higher quality equipment greatfully accepted!

Here's what that lot looks like:

Fantastic... something I've always wanted to do! I reckon it's the best way to express RP visually by far.
All being well I'll attempt a Darwin bracket next weekend (first response training this week).
