DIY Camera SLIDER (Part 2) – Fusion 360, CNC & 3D-Printing | 2-axis MOTORIZED

In this series I embark on building a 2-axis motorized camera slider with sliding and panning of the camera. The slider will be controlled by a Arduino NANO and two NEMA17’s driven by a4988’s. In this video I wire the electronics, design the machine in Fusion 360, carve the pieces I need on my CNC machine, paint the pieces and 3D Print some parts I need.

First of you have the wiring diagram:
