MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
Important Printing Note: the Camera Sled as uploaded is actually inverted to the best orientation for printing.
Suggested printing orientation for the camera sled
Added a 54mm 'straight' adapter that allows for a separate avionics bay and because of the additional length it doesn't interfere with the view. The holes in the side are for both atmospheric venting and maybe access to your flight computer. (but mostly for the venting)
Latest flight at Aeronaut 2018
54mm Offset base has been added. A friend wanted to fly one on a 54mm air frame so I developed this offset base. It needed to be offset so the adapter wouldn't obscure the camera's view. It's looks a little strange but it flies perfectly.
Both the base and the camera sled have been tweaked to fit better. The 3.1 updates are the only changes at this time.
First Rev of the Cineroc 808 construction overview.
Mike Dorffler (pictured above) in the early 70s designed for Estes Industries the 'Cineroc' a super 8mm film camera you could fly on a model rocket. That camera captured the imaginations of many young rocket scientist (like me).
You will need a 6.5" length of 6-32 all thread - but you don't have to if you're comfortable with gluing the top on or using tape. You can use an actual 6-32 nut if you want, but I wanted something bulkier and easily tighten by hand, so I made the thumb nob.
