This camera rail and slider is a great example of custom rail design for shooting video.

We used this rail and a 3D-printed camera slider to shoot part of our Kickstarter video.

If you've got some wire and a 3D printer you can bend/print any sort of rail and slider set-up. Shoot with an slr or your smart phone; create an arched rail or just something straight; you could even create some sort of roller coaster rail. You know, for some, like, high videos!


Step 1: Gather the Necessary Materials and Tools

Material: 2 lengths .125" Galvanized Steel Wire
