what files you need? let me know and let me have your email as well

Would you be willing to share the original models? I would like to adapt the camera mount to hold my webcam and a green laser diode.

Perfect for a curtain tracker...

Instructions

1) Print out the parts, In fill can choose 30% or up to 50%

2) The camera mount using a round type USB camera. you may need to touch up for your existing one.you also can found the photo with 2 camera. The mount design can allow you using 2 camera if necessary. However, due to the precision, I cannot make too tight fitting indeed. the gap you may add some blu-Tack fill in a bit. then the camera can very secure fixed on the mount. Love you can share with another shape camera mount for this


***Servo mount was deleted, as this is for my first version. this version already skipped saving plastic

3) Some of the holes need touch up, will improve soon.

4) some movie taken and sharing with you

5) software and testing coming (hopefully can be donw in 2 weeks.

It's those darned minor technical problems that usually take 90% of the time!

List out what make you annoying, I will modify it ASAP, at present some really need drilling to touch up a bit

Looks great!

What servos did you use? What other hardware is needed to build this? I would love to make one!

Futaba 3001 compatible low end servo X 2

Arduino UNO board X1

USB camera X 1

Next for object tracking, you need

Matlab program

Arduino to Matlab software pack

When I finished, will put all on WEB
