3D Printed Zoetrope by Shaun Rogers

3D Printed Zoetrope from Shaun Rogers on Vimeo.

Yesterday we took a look at The Story of the Animated Drawing, a 1955 episode of the ABC television show Disneyland. At one point in the episode Walt Disney demonstrated a handful of 19th century novelty devices that paved the way for the development of animation. One of these devices, the zoetrope, has had a 21st century revival in the form of 3D printed variations like the one featured at the top of this post by animator Shaun Rogers (no relation).
