Working! and nicely!

I got two 1 meter round bar from my local store, printed everything and downloaded the APP. THIS IS THE BEST diy CAMERA SLIDER I have found so far (And I am always researching) GREAT JOB jjRobots!

Impressive and well designed camera slider

I thought a 3D printed camera slider would not be sturdy enough but I was wrong. The tracking object feature makes the difference
