This is the Architects3DP SLIDE, our DIY motorised Camera slider that will allow you to make slide and pan shots with your DSLR, all controlled from your smartphone via wifi.
The Architects3DP SLIDE is the best DIY 3d printed camera slider. We’ve created it from scratch using inexpensive components and 3D Printed parts, that we have printed using our custom Architects3DP I3 3d printer, and you can print as well to make your own build.
Firstly, the slider can be customised from the firmware to make the movement slower or faster. You’ll be able to choose the speed you want to use for each shot right from your smartphone.
Secondly, you could add a 12V battery to the build, what will make it 100% portable. Therefore you’ll be able to use the slider everywhere you go.
In addition, you’ll be able to fold the legs to make it even more portable. But maybe the greatest feature is that you can modify it for your needs downloading the 3d model in Rhino format.
Links and downloads
Down below you’ll find the different links for this project. From the SAKATA3D filament that I’ve used to print the components, to the STL and 3DM files, as well as the complete Bill Of Materials where you can find the links to buy all the components through our affiliate links on amazon.
Sakata 3D Filaments
Sakata 3D, a 3d printer filament company based in Spain, provided the necessary filament to make this build possible.
That is to say that they didn’t pay me to talk about them in this video, but they provided the filament with a nice discount.
Here you’ll find the links to the materials I’ve used in this build.
In the next link, you’ll be able to download all the STL files for the project, including:
3DM Customisable File
Here you’ll be able to download the Rhino File, where you’ll be able to fully customise your Architects3DP SLIDE.
Architects3DP SLIDE Firmware
Here you’ll be able to download the firmware that you will need to flash into the NodeEMCU using the Arduino interface.
Furthermore, you’ll find extra information about how to program the firmware and flash it into your NodeMCU at NOVASPIRIT tech blog.
Architects3DP SLIDE BOM – Bill Of Materials
Clicking here you’ll get access to a Google Sheets BOM document where you’ll be able to buy from amazon every necessary component for this build while supporting my YouTube Channel.
However, it will probably be easier and cheaper if you buy the regular hardware from your hardware store, since you’ll only need small amounts of bolts and so on.
Support me on Patreon!
If you want to help me to keep producing new content every week, you can consider supporting me on Patreon. First, by doing that you will help me to buy more filaments , printers and other components to make new projects.
Secondly, by becoming a patron, your name will appear at the end of the videos.
In addition, you can also get more nice rewards such as early access to the videos, access to the STL files of the projects and even get our maker coin in your mailbox.
