mutoscope (simple kinetoscope)

3D model description

Mutoscope low-tech and high-tech at the same time:
Low-tech: the very basic way to mechanically run an animation (Like Thomas Edison's Kinetoscope,)
but made with very last high-tech 3d printing.
my first full project in solidworks from scratch!!
now i can enjoy my granddaughter Neomi's first smiles over and over...
thank you instructables handy_woman for the inspiration!!

Post-Printing
for printing the 24 frames (one second) i used Photoshop and Premiere. but there are online places that can convert video to gif and separate images:
like ezgif.com
each frame is a printed in 250gr paper 12cm X10 cm and has holes, punched with a standard office hole puncher. (8cm apart) that keeps the frames in place and registered
the photo holder has pegs at the same distance.
I added the template i used to print the frames a4.pdf which has the center mark for punching the holes and for printing 4 frames in a4 page.
