Post 6 axis rig. 2 axis test for speed
Decided to make myself a Christmas present. A new rig that will mainly use Dragon Frame for control to do timelapse. Eventually it will be 6 axis. Pan,Tilt,Roll,Zoom and focus. Right now it does not have Zoom and Focus. I also need to add a large tube and bigger bearing to the lower bearing block for wire pass through. The Ring brackets will be redesigned to allow for vertical adjustment of the camera. It was designed for my t4i without the battery grip.
All the parts in Blue and grey were printed on a 3d printer I designed and built and the black parts are cut out of ABS on a CNC router I designed and built.
The video is just a two axis test for speed.

Really nice work Donny. How long did it take to make the 3D printer?

Glad to see somebody tackling things other than sliders :) . Nearly missed your post you need to sort out the video embedding .
Look forward to the rest of the rig . 3d printer on my list of things to do just going to put a extruder on me mill.

I tried to embed the video. I tried to use the youtube button and it does not work. Just spits out plain test. Using Firefox.

It took about 20 hours of drawing in Solidworks to get the main drawing done for the first 4 axis's.
I have about 50 hours of printing to print the parts so far.

The 3d printer took a few months and $3500. But its 400mm cubed 2 extruder with a heat bed and rapids at 1000 inches per min.


I tried uploading a couple pics but the website keeps crashing.

Hopefully this address link will help:



No "embed" in the link address.

Why did you decide to not have it rotate around the center of the lens?

Thanks MikeA for embedding the video.

Koko,
It does center on the lens if I don't have my extra battery pack installed. I am going to redesign it to be adjustable.

Post Timelapse of 4 axis first light setup and test
Here is a update to my RotoSlider. The video is a Time-Lapse I took with my Phone using Lapse It Pro. This was the first time I have set the slider up and ran it. It took about 10 min to hook it up and make a path in DragonFrame. It was a 500 frame test with 4 seconds in between shots. Using a Canon t4i which is also controlled in DragonFrame.
Long ways to go but all went very well first time out.
Tried to embed the video both ways. Doesn't look like it is going to take. The link is at the bottom

Looking good, certainly a different profile to the usual slide pan combo ;)
