Movie S3. Translated coiling: Pattern of translated coiling obtained when depositing the same rod used in Movies S1 and S2, from the same height, but at an even higher dimensionless speed mismatch, ϵ=0.7 (injection speed, v=2.0 cm/s, and belt speed, v=1.0 cm/s). Experiments (Left) vs. simulations (Right) are shown. The movie is sped up by a factor of 5, with respect to real time.
