    I'm trying to design a motion control DSLR rig with C-Beam, here's a crude drawing :

    The rig will be screwed to the ceiling, allowing a camera to move in all axis. The plate/box containing the camera is not designed yet.

    I'm worried about the max weight that can be carried by the Z axis, do you think a nema 23 rotating a threaded rod can work properly ? I'm not trying to reach high speeds, a few cm/s is enough.

    Hey there. I am looking to do the exact same build. Have you built this? Would you be willing to share some insights if you have? If you haven't, would you like to collaborate?

    Check this build out. It covers much of the base mechanics I believe.
