Introduction: My First DIY: Simplest Speed Controllable Camera Slider on Youtube?

Hi frands, this is my first try making in how to build something, so sorry for the fast cut and just visual explanation. I didn't want to bore anyone, that's why I made it as short as possible. Even though there is no detailed information, I hope you get the idea of how to make it as simple as possible by just watching. You can ask me anything

I apologize for being in this category, hand formable carbon didn't fit into any category. And i "printed" it with my hands, kind of ;)

The mechanism: The drill rolls up some fishing line that gets deflected on the other side, pulling the slide. The white stuff is felt from IKEA to reduce the friction

    Very cool!

    Can you tell a bit about the material you used? That looks interesting and potentially very useful.

    Thank you!

    That's some low melting carbon composite material that was heated up with hot water to get it formable. Unfortunately, my head-mounted GoPro batteries went empty so I didn't film a lot of steps in this progress. I'm working on another DIY Video right now that will show it in more detail. I'm one of the first "beta-testers" of this stuff, if you have any specific questions, let me know

    Where did you get "low melting carbon composite material"??

    Ist a prototype material for now, but you can soon get an early hands-on. Just google "compound 9"

    Here it is in a little bit more detail:

    Ps. my roommate has invented it, thats why im the "early bird" ;)
