Camera Gantry Take 2. Todd writes –

As I said in the last video I wasn’t to happy with how smooth or straight the cart was with the 6 little wheels and the one rail. I found that local garage repair companies recycle several old garage doors daily included wheels, brackets and tracks. I contacted one and they didn’t even want to charge me to pickup some scrap track. So this build just got a whole lot cheaper and with two tracks for the camera cart it solved my smoothness issue as well as my camera swing. Check out the video and a few photos below. But first you may want to check out my first whack at this camera gantry where I show more of the welding, cutting and setup.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
