This is a remix of the Bluetooth Motorized Camera Slider from Adafruit.
I changed the bearing mount part by adding a slot for mounting to the leg. This allows you to adjust for better belt tension. I also adjusted the pin that the skate bearing goes on. Previously it was 8mm which is same diameter of the skate bearing hole. This made it very difficult to put the bearing on without breaking the peg if the printer wasn’t perfectly dialed in. It is now a 7.8mm peg.
I also adjusted the holes on the camera platform, previously they were just a bit out of alignment from the slide rail platform. Now that they are aligned you can use M5 x 14 Socket head cap screws to mount this to the slide rail. It looks nicer and doesn’t have hardware poking out the top anymore.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
