Following on from a slight leaking plumbing issue (read: toilet fell through the floor), I had to undertake some DIY. As I had to replace a chunk of the floor anyway, my other half decided it was time to give the room a general little spruce up.
Due to issues with the new shower curtain rail she had bought, I needed a 3D printed fix, and decided to make a video of the process!
The shower rail in question works by pressure between the walls, but our slippery tiles gave it nowhere near enough friction to stay in place. There were already some holes in the wall from the bracket from the dodgy old rail, it was easy enough to make a quick bracket to keep the thing in place. An easy project, and with plenty of leftover paint from the bathroom, it even matches the colour scheme of the room.
I decided to document the process, and make a quick video from start to finish. A few short clips on my phone, a few title cards knocked up in GIMP, and some music from my old album and I had a nice little video to add to my LBRY channel. Good to let people know that a 3D printer can be a handy tool for DIY around the home!
Mainly though, this entire video was an excuse to learn a little more about using Flowblade. I’ve tried out a few different FLOSS video editors, and this seems to have the best balance between features and accessibility – especially for someone with no real background in video. I’ll be using it more in the future, so I’m sure I’ll share some thoughts in the future.
