3D printed carbon-tube slider for DSLR timelapse


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · 3D printed carbon-tube slider for DSLR timelapse

Hi,

finally I have finished my carbon-tube slider for timelapse photography.

As you can see, almost every part is printed. I have used the UM2 and the Colorfabb PLA/PHA, which is now my standard filament for everything.

More information on the slider can be found on my website:

I have tried standard ABS and PLA. Both with extreme wrapping, which result almost everytime into a not usable print.

PLA/PHA from ColorFabb has realy low wrapping properties (I have added Kapton-tape all over my buildplate). Also, it is more flexible and not so brittle like standard PLA, which makes it more robust.

I need to run further testing with XT, since it has a higher glass transistion temperature, which comes in handy for outdoor ust by sunlight.
