A turntable wich you can fully 3D-print, no extra parts needed!
It can be used to make beautiful cinematic shots of objects but it can also be used as a rig to make photos for photogrammetry software so you can 3D-scan objects.
The large black 'slide bearing' is printed in one peace and is free to move the moment it comes from the printbed. The print in place of moving objects adds to the simplicity of the build. The turntable is designed to be snap fitted without the need for glue, but depending on your printer, some glue might be a good idea to keep parts at their place.
Once the turntable is fully assembled, it might be hard to rotate it. I used some fine machine oil to lubricate all the parts and just turned it a lot so some wear and tear could accur wich helps with the smoothness. Once lubricated it turns very smooth. (of course not as smooth as if you were to use a bearing but pretty smooth for something wich is completely 3D-printed).
I added a white platform template to the files (pdf) wich can be printed and cut out with cissors. the diameter of the circle is 10 mm wider than the platform.
