    I’ve never heard of kefting. Probably illegal in Utah.

    Maybe kerfing?

    Day-um.  That is exactly what I need to resume my stop-motion LEGO animation project.  (My homebrew greenscreen solution just wasn’t up to snuff, and left way too many artifacts in the finished product…)

    Interesting. A nice setup but what does it cost? Since cost is usually the main reason to go DIY. My 16x16x16 light box ran $25 including all materials and lights.


    Clever, and a good example of careful design producing good results from simple materials.

    I may make something similar, but it has to be collapsible. I know there are commercial solutions, but I’m a MAKER damnit!

    The urban dictionary states:
    Keft. to pass gas, to rip, to trump. Commonly used in the classroom after someone just let rip a major eggy fart: “OHHH! Who’s keft?”

    Colour me confused

  8. Mine is just a sturdy cardboard  box with cotton covered windows on three sides and an open front. Seems to give acceptable results. No fancy-ass infinite anythings required.

    I suspect you mean kerfing not kefting. Kerfing is the process of cutting many parallel shallow cuts into wood to allow the curving of normally rigid materials .

    Terrible photographic results on his Flickr, I made one out of a large cardboard box and some pure white artist board

    Pretty sweet. And it’s gotta be cheaper than the commercial alternative(-ish):

    i made mine out of PVC with some white polyester for the sides:

    cheap work lights clipped to some handy mic stands for lighting.

    works fine:

    I think you would be better off making Steve Sint’s light table. Easier to construct and break down also better lighting possibilities.

    I’m wondering if the little tripedal robot is going to drink what’s in the brown bottle – or just look at it.
