I think it is worth noting, that the LEM8UU bearings REQUIRE "Linear motion" rods to use in this slider config. All other rods will not be exactly 8mm as desired.
Just ordered the LEM8UU to make one of these . :)

Instructions

If you have a heavy camera (or lens), you will probably want to increase the value of foot_spacing (look in camera_slide_end.scad).

Print 1x slide and 2x end
Add 4x LME8UU linear bearings to the carriage
Use a 1/4 inch screw to attach a camera (or quick release plate) to the carriage
Push 2x 8mm diameter rods through the bearings
Push or hammer the ends on the rods
