THIS DESIGN HAS BEEN MOVED TO YOUMAGINE:
I tried to improve on the camera slider by Matt Roberts by making the sides more versatile.
You can mount the sider on a tripod now and mount equipment to it.
All holes for bolts and rods are tapered for easy assembly.
All corners that a human hand can touch are rounded.
I added M5 holes at a 45ÃÂ° angle into the feet, so you can insert threaded rods or bolts to dynamically add longer feet when needed.
Don't forget to mirror one side before printing.
Mount a 40x10mm L bracket to help stabilise the slider.
Use 3mm grub screws to secure the 8mm rods.
Use 4x M5 bolts to mount the L bracket to the sides.
Drill a center 1/4" hole into it and cut a UNC gear.
Also cut 1/4" gears into the center holes at top and bottom of both sides.
Now you can mount your slider on one (center) or two (sides) tripods.
You can also mount a lamp, microphone or display to the top of a side.
