3D Printed DSLR Gimbal #celebratephotography

Thanks to Mathias for sharing this instructable on our Facebook!

From OpenSAM‘s instructable:

The OpenSAM by OHM is developed for filmmaking amateurs and professionals. The design allows a broad spectrum of cameras of varying sizes and weights to be stabilized. The use of 3D printing technology for the mechanical construction means that it can easily be reproduced and any design changes are easily implemented. The 3D printed parts are also lightweight (actually lighter than any commercial carbon-based designs). All parts were printed in PLA using Ultimaker Original 3D Printers or Bq Witbox 3D Printers and the files have been made available under an open source license through our GitHub and website.

The brushless gimbal stabilization system uses three brushless motors to stabilize the axes. One 8-bit brushless gimbal controller (BGC), an expansion card and an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) is all the electronics needed for assembly. Our model seen in the video and pictures cost under $200 in parts, excluding the 3D-printed parts (which are free to print as students in Denmark). This should be compared to the price of similar gimbals, which start at around $1000.
