This project builds on top of the original bluetooth motorized camera slider. Most of the electronics and hardware components are repurposed in this upgrade and uses the exact same code and software.
The majority of the update is mechanical. The slider performs much smoother and operates with less friction in the timing belt. The entire slider assembly can now be mounted to a tripod! Two 2020 aluminum extrusions support the linear bearing rail allowing the assembly to be mounted to a tripod. Redesigned mounts reduces the amount of friction caused by the timing belt, allowing much smoother motion.
I suggest walking through the following guides to get a better understanding of the electronics.
The Adafruit Metro, Motor Shield, BLE Module and Stepper Motor are the main electronic components used in this project.
There's a lot of hardware components such as the sliding rail, linear bearing, ball bearing, timing belt, extrusions, etc.
