    Bored of printing useless models? Ready to see what your printer is capable of?
    I've got a project for you; A Medium/Large format DSLR stabilizer designed for FDM printing under $100. 
    Please bare in mind that this is still a prototype and any constructive feedback is more than welcome! 
    Footage coming soon!

    Materials and methods

    All the printed parts should be very easy to print, none of them needing support or finishing.
    Be sure to use high infill.
    I estimate around 25 hours of printing at 40 mm/s.
    I used a Manfrotto 323 quick release to mount the camera.
