A Time Lapse Rail Made With 3D Printed Parts - DIY Photography
Photographer/maker Tom Parker whom we recently featured for his eSteady $200 MoVI-like rig, has another pretty interesting project shared on his website. It is a time lapse track built with 3D printed parts. The heart of the system is an open sourced Arduino based Chronos lite system that controls the motion and shooting on the rail. The slider itself is built with the Igus system (which we reviewed here) and a long lead-screw. A lead screw has a few advantages over the conventional belt.
