Super long camera slider with Arduino

A couple of weeks ago I created this fully mechanical camera slider and this slider is electronically with an Arduino and a stepper motor. With this slider it is possible to move a lot slower than with the mechanical version. Another advantage is that it is possible to make a longer slide because the stepper motor can rotate continuously. However, the driver is getting very hot and I have solved this with a fan but a heat sink will probably do too.

The datasheet of the driver can be found here:
Some sources I used for making the Arduino code:

The thing files can be found here:

I have created a video about this slider in which I show the process of making and the end result. Have fun watching!
