The process of development saw the following needing to be designed, tested, and then prototyped:
1. Slider Rail (standard Section)
2. Camera Dolly / Slider (rollers attached to a bent metal chassis)
3. Motion Control: this was the most tricky and takes up most of this instructable. It illustrates how I developed and tested a standard geared motor, with a gearbox… which didn’t work well enough. After this, I attempted utilising a stepper motor which is controlled by an Arduino Uno board which worked much more effectively.
