Did you print the camera rail slider? Is that included in this package?
Also the link to instructables doesn't have any post/instructions posted...did you remove them?

This is really awesome. I am making a steadicam and was wondering where I can find the bottom piece that holds the three bottles. I am drafting a similar piece on SolidWorks and was wondering if you can modify so that it fits a 8 mm tube?

I just added the part in .STL named "LowerEnd V1.0-3D - counterweight". It fits a Central 8mm rod and was made for Coca Bottles :D Have fun !

Thank you so much!

Happy to help ! One day i'll finish correctly this project ^^ With at least a stable counterweight (as the sand moves around at each bump and destabilizes every adjustement every 5 minutes.... and a more rigid head, cause this one has trouble holding heavy DSLR correctly (it is safe and will not break easily even in PLA, but vibrates a lot). I'm quite happy about the gimbal cause it's really cheap and very stable even after over a year using it. The entire thing is damn too heavy with a big DSLR and it rapidly hurts so your arm shakes... This might help in future versions of it : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1pG4TqZJfA

This is really awesome what you're doing. Have you tried using smaller 8 oz bottles? You can fill them up to the brim and use them as your counter weights without experiencing any significant destabilization.

I'm gonna make it better ! I'm thinking about a 3D printed container filled with lead balls/pellets. But using smaller bottls will help for sure !

Good luck! (-:

Well, I sincerely though the crowdfunding campaign ( http://igg.me/at/Glimo/x/8351860 ) would look better than it is looking now... Still, I really enjoy sharing this project with you makers ! And I want everybody to make awesome shoots !

Nice work Bro and it's really a kind act from you to share all this months of work thAnksss
