Edelkrone, a producer of movie tools has launched a 3D printed tabletop dolly Skater 3D for DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Appropriate with all tripod head and magic arms, the 3D printed dolly is designed to make the arrange of curved and linear digital camera movement simpler. As a part of its co-manufacturing program Ortak, Edelkrone delivers the essential parts to the shoppers who will later 3D print and assemble their Skater 3D. This method to manufacturing digital camera equipment presents higher customizability at a cheaper price.
Co-manufacturing digital camera equipment
3D printing is growing delivering customized options for images. In the previous few years, we’ve seen Kickstarters for common cameras, tiny 3D printed cameras that may slot in syringes and 100% 3D printed analog cameras.
Edelkrone is taking a step additional to include 3D printing in movie tools. Via its new co-manufacturing method Ortak, the corporate goals to “[…] permit anybody to personal fully-functional, high-tech merchandise at tremendously diminished costs”. Edelkrone merchandise are manufactured by each the corporate and the buyer. To make sure the top product’s performance, Edelkrone will manufacture the essential elements corresponding to CNC machined aluminum joints and sooner or later, digital parts. Whereas Edelkrone ship the essential elements, customers should 3D print the remainder of the product. This provides shoppers the power to customise the design, kind, and colour in keeping with their wants.
The primary product in Edelkrone’s Ortak vary is the FlexTILT Head 3D, a flexible and versatile tripod head. Utilizing the FlexTILT Head 3D on prime of a slider, photographers can flip their cameras in varied instructions with ease. It’s notably useful for bird-eye view, pan, and tilt photographs.
