MakerSlider Camera Slider by canadaduane Oct 29, 2012

Description

NOTE: Version 2.0 of the MakerSlider is called the Cinemaker Pocket Dolly and is on Thingiverse at thingiverse.com/thing:42521

This is an Arduino-controlled video camera slider that you can fit in your trunk and attach to a tripod. It uses makerslide rails for the linear motion. Aside from the aluminum, its parts can all be printed on a 3D printer (so far).

See makerslider.com/

The slider is still a work-in-progress, but as a manual camera slider can be used as-is. Some improvements in the near-term include stronger endcaps, and a tripod mount that will not slip. (Note: I've begun work on a motorized version of the slider. The subplate.stl file is a plate that mounts a NEMA 17 motor to the standard aluminum carriage).

In the future, the MakerSlider will use stepper motors for full hands-off automation.

Note: much of the design ideas are taken from Bart Dring's original makerslide camera slider project at buildlog.net/wiki/doku.php?id=ms:ms_slider

Thanks, raster. I've started developing the parts necessary for a motorized slider this weekend. I think the parts turned out well, but there is much more to do!
Off to s great start! I'll be keeping an eye on the progress.
