"Well, so am I! I had a career in television back in the analogue days. What I am aiming to do with my rig is to test it out so I can be sure everything works as it should, then make the 3D printer files available - there are about 80 of them for the…"

"The track is made from 1 3/4" square aluminium tubing 10 swg, which is available in up to 5 metre lengths. The track supports can be placed anywhere along the rails, with the belt connected to the end ones, which hold the motor and idler. The…"

"The second pic with the roll cage, as you can see from my rig, is way more complex than I have gone for. Having said that, I have deliberately made the jib head in two pieces so the whole head can be detached and either used on a separate rig or…"

"Hi Julian Well, the first picture does not look a million miles away from what I have just spent several months designing and building. Here is a pic of the prototype just slotted together and without motors, although the mounts have been printed…"

"However I want to have the axes available for the main rig."

Julian Smith replied to Julian Smith's discussion Tracked Motion Control Rig with Model Mount
"Those are the axes for the mount.  Only ones required for that."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Julian Smith's discussion Tracked Motion Control Rig with Model Mount
"That sounds very interesting. Essentially you need to have extra axes that can be simultaneously controlled. This is why I am badgering on about yaw and pitch, because if you eliminate a couple of axes, that frees up th channels for the model rig."
Nov 21, 2020
Simon Tytherleigh replied to Julian Smith's discussion Tracked Motion Control Rig with Model Mount
"I don't have a problem with the terms. Just curious as o how the axis is different from pan and tilt axes. Is the centre of rotation located slmewher else? Can these axes not be eliminated by making movements that combine the other axes?"
