I’m actually not going to talk a huge amount about this one…the instructions and the video pretty much show you everything that you need to know.
This is a great Instructable for making a camera slider-rail, specifically for use with stop-motion photography, but it could be used in a lot of different ways. This is pretty much the basis for building any moving-axis project using Arduino. 3D Printers, CNC, whatever. I’m thinking about adapting this for overhead use for me to use a camera on to get top-down shots while I’m soldering or something. I think it would work great for that!
So a big thanks go out to edupuertas on the Instructables website for putting together this tutorial! It’s easy to follow enough for anyone to use, but goes into enough detail that it’s easy to see where adaptations can be made, and why the different choices were made for the project!
