Over the last month I have been working with my house mate Tom Forsyth (@thomasforsythand his Ultimaker 2 (@ultimaker) 3d printer redesigning a follow focus for my canon 5d mark 2 and its 50mm f1.4 lens. We used a design by Marcus Wolschon (follow focus) and a remix of a geared knob by Submodal over on the MakerBot app. Tom used google sketch up to make a customised tripod plate for my Manfrotto 128RC mini video head to. The movement is really smooth already but we will be upgrading the bearing set in the near future to removing some of the play in the large blue handle.
