  • + 700 mm Black Anodized Aluminium profile

    This is a high quality, black anodized 2020 type aluminium profile. Its black mate surface will help you to avoid reflections if you are filming something too close to the camera (and black looks cooler than regular aluminium)

    With the KIT, we include, 1500 mm of GT2 timing belt (fibre core), the right amount of belt for this profile length.

    + 3D printed parts SET 

    You can print by yourself all the frame´s parts, but if you want to get them from us, just tick the box below. We have used High Resistance Ingeo 870 PLA filament (+info here) to print the parts, cleaned and tolerance tested them all so you will not have any problems assembling your Camera Slider KIT

    + 2x NEMA17 motors + Cables

    You can use any compatible NEMA17 motor to create your Camera Slider, but if you want to save the hassle of getting custom cables from somewhere else (and want to get them fast), get the motors and cables (75+14 cms) from jjRobots ticking the box below

    Excellent kit. Had been looking for both a project to put together and had been looking at camera sliders for a while . So when I saw this, it was a no brainer. The print files worked well, I printed mine with PETG so there was some stringing etc to clean up on the gear for instance but once I cleaned them up it worked exactly as expected. Currently I don’t have the plastic cover on the circuit board as I can’t really take this outside right now but will put that on then. Also have to give props to the customer service I received, at the time of my purchase there is no battery option that comes with it but upon asking via email whether or not I could use one and how to make that work I received an email with details of how that could be implemented, as well as being infot that a battery pack option would be included some time in the near future. Given this is a kit and your experience may vary depending on your skill level, I can tell you that I am at best a novice and I made it work (easily!) So I think if you can you should give it a go.

    Do not use other aluminium rail that the recommended!

    I have problems inserting the two ENDs (pulley and Motor) to the rail. The problem was that I was using the wrong aluminium rail. I initially blamed the design but it was my fault. USE THE V-shaped rail! See the photo for details. I couldn´t fully insert it. Besides that, very stable and smooth camera slider

    Lo he moficiado un poco para poder cargar con mas peso y funciona perfectamente. Publicare como en github tan pronto como pueda. La APP de control va muy bien (y gratis!)
