Camera Slider (old)

Improvement to Matt Roberts camera slider. You can mount the sider on a tripod now and mount equipment to it. All holes for bolts and rods are tapered for easy assembly. All corners that a human hand can touch are rounded.

Don't forget to mirror one side before printing.

Mount a 40x10mm L bracket to help stabilise the slider.

Use 3mm grub screws to secure the 8mm rods.

Use 4x M5 bolts to mount the L bracket to the sides.

Drill a center 1/4" hole into it and cut a UNC gear.

Also cut 1/4" gears into the center holes at top and bottom of both sides.

Now you can mount your slider on one (center) or two (sides) tripods.

You can also mount a lamp, microphone or display to the top of a side.

I added M5 holes at a 45° angle into the feet, so you can insert threaded rods or bolts to dynamically add longer feet when needed.

Materials and methods

LM8UU bearings
M5 bolts
optional L bracket for added stability with long rods
