Well, it's fairly comical that I stop by here and see another thread for a DIY motorized slider :) But I have been toying around with this project in my head for several months now and I finally got some time to do it. It's going to be in two parts - the first part is building essentially a standard "manual" non-motorized slider, and the second part is motorizing it. I've finished filming the second part, and hope to have the video live sometime next week. I'm very happy with the motor setup - it can pull 5lbs vertically with no problems.

Part I: https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=6xm3VVYVnEo (external link)

cheers :)

I don't shoot video, but am always a sucker for DIY-type stuff. Nice job on the video presenting how you did this project.

I am doing some sample filming/photography for my 80/20 with 3d printed slider this evening and tomorrow and will be posting as well. I really enjoy seeing other people using 3d printers for camera gear.

I was definitely unsure about the strength of 3d printed parts when I first started designing everything. I really couldn't be happier with how the parts turned out, especially considering my printer was only $500. The whole reason for my going DIY on this route was to cut as much weight as possible for hiking and climbing trips, and being able to use plastic in some areas really helped cut down on weight. I'll probably even end up printing a plastic housing for the controller, just to shave another few ounces. Looking forward to seeing yours!
