v2 Build coming very soon! I'm prototyping now! If you're interested in testing it please feel free to reach out!
This was made as just a fun project! I wanted a camera slider that was quite long, however the prebuilt professional ones were quite expensive, hence this! The slider uses conduit and some 3D printed parts as well as a motor and motor controller from Amazon (listed below).
If you happen to make this, please let me know! I'm looking for suggestions/improvements for future renditions.

Non Printed Parts Used:
Motor (12V/100RPM) - https://amzn.to/2WEYGZw
PWM Speed Control - https://amzn.to/2KQ1Ken
Power Supply - https://amzn.to/2XfKndt
Motor Pulley - https://amzn.to/2Kj4v8s
GT2 Belt - https://amzn.to/2FbKegO
Conduit - This is what I used, since my local Home Depot had it in stock, but any 1/2 in EMT will do. I would recommend getting metal tubing over plastic however. -https://thd.co/2RdWP88

Hot glue and Glue gun
You will also need M3 Screws for the electronics and a few #6 screws if you want to print and attach the roof.
Anet endstops - https://amzn.to/2KicHWE
Screw Assortment* - https://amzn.to/2ZpaJqM
Expanding foam glue - https://amzn.to/2X88RW4
*These are used for the electronics, the optional roof and pipe extensions are designed to be used with #6 screws and bolts (sorry, thats what I had on hand :/ )
**The length of these parts can vary depending on how long you want your slider to be!
- Fix overhang issues on left & right sides
- redesigned slim right housing
- PWM controller mount under rails
- Add cooling if needed
- fix overhang on countersinks on sled facing.
- Convert to M3 screws
Any Any PLA/ABS/ Sturdy Filaments
I would recommend printing "EMC_Connect.stl" & "Left Side.stl" on their sides as to prevent sag in some parts and increase the rigidity of the pieces. These pieces shouldn't need supports.
I printed "right side.stl" just as it is with no supports.
I printed "sled.stl" so the flat side faced down. There was a bit of sag in the cutouts for the screw heads, so supports are optional here, but not 100% necessary.
I printed "TopCover.stl" with the curve facing the bed, using supports, however it could be printed straight up in theory.
