I have been dreaming about a nice and stable shoulder rig for quite some time now. I've finally decided to make one myself, in 3D and sharing the design and adding new features as time pass.
I really like gadgets... and i want to add functions to my camera that I cant today. It can be anything from LED-lights to Microphones and handles etc. I really like to be able to have a base that can be a shoulder rig or even a cage-rig or why not a steadycam-rig.
These are the first STL files for development process.
The original Rhino 3D files will be avaliable in STL, IGES, STEP and .3dm when first rig is complete.
The project is developed at this link. Bring your feedback!
Carbon fiber rods (15mm) can be found from amazon here: http://amzn.to/2jS0M3Q
The development are also being filmed and shown in episodies at this YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/AMID2D3D
SORRY ABOUT LOW VOLUME
The STL-files are marked 14mm or 15mm depending if they are needed for custom rods (different sizes). Please note that the parts without "14mm" or "15mm" are to be used with both combos. See the PDF's for part list for the shoulder rig.
Hardware (non printed) used for this project is:
M5x25mm HEX-HEAD + standard M5 nut
M3x10 Socket Head Cap + standard M3 nut
M3x20 Socket Head Cap + standard M3 nut
15mm diameter rods (amazon: http://amzn.to/2jS0M3Q)
