Photographer and Videographer Stefan Kohler came up with a complete DIYed Slider system built on top of the Igus platform for bones, a stepper motor for muscles, and an Arduino for brains (and lots of hard labor for hearts).
The slider mimics the excellent Cine Slider from Kessler, only for a fraction of the cost in money and whole lots blood sweat and tears (of joy of course).
Part 1 – Building the Slider
Part 2 – The Electronics
Part 3 – Demo and Test Shots
Part 4 – Smoothness test
The entire project is open-sourced and documented on Stefan’s site, if you don’t speak German, here is a machine translated version.
