Cinemaker Pocket Dolly

Cinemaker Pocket Dolly by canadaduane Jan 15, 2013

Description

This is (going to be) version 2.0 of an open hardware motorized pocket dolly that you (a budding videographer who wants access to a high quality but affordable linear motion system) can fit in your trunk and attach to a pair of tripods. It uses a small, portable 12V battery for power.

For linear motion, it uses two rails on a makerslide aluminum extrusion and v-wheels to guide the sled. This version of the Cinemaker Pocket Dolly will (probably) be able to hold up to 10 lbs of video or camera equipment on the sled. The tripod mounts use a universal 1/4"-20 threaded nut that will accommodate the vast majority of tripods out there.

The original 1.0 version is called MakerSlider: thingiverse.com/thing:33368

Hey Seshan, see this github repo for more recent parts: https://github.com/canadaduane...

I can't get the scad file to work for the bracket in openscad, it's giving me some warnings about unkown module cornerless cube.

Anyways, Any chance you could generate a .stl of the motor bracket for this motor? Thanks.

Did you ask yourself a question? LOL :)

Thanks for posting this and v1. Looking for some ideas for my slider. I'm looking to make a compactable system that I can use for camping trips and hikes. Still working out the details but the aluminum extrusion might be the way to go if I can figure out the joints.
Aloha!

So I'm curious... what are you all using this for? A camera slider... or something else?
