Re: DSLR Camera Slider

I am working on my camera slider also. It will be arduino driven based off of an open build 20x60 Extrusion that I had 1 meter long. I am trying to find places to get programming for the Arduino with a Sainsmart LCD with push buttons.

Re: Acme upgrade, Belt Drive, and Nema 23 Z upgrades install

good Job. You will really like the upgrade. I am glad that when I did the build from the start We tapped the Z makerslide on both ends. This made of an easy upgrade as I did not have to take the Makerslide off of the plate to do the upgrade.

Re: Z gantry leans a few degrees from square

I appreciate your help. The good news is it's much better now. I think I have the gantry squared front and back. The weird thing is, the gantry is square with the mdf base, but the z axis 'carriage' I think it's called, the black part that moves on the gantry, is not square with the baseboard. I'm ...
