I need some help from Makers who know how to do things I know exist at DMS but don’t personally know how to do.
Background: The Remote for the Multicam is a pricey gadget ($1500) that has a long cord that gets caught on objects and just is generally too easy to drop or knock off the cabinet or CNC table. I added a ceiling mounted tool balancer that holds the remote low enough to be convenient to hold and use, but high enough to not swing into the table.
The remote does not have an attachment point for the balancer cable, so I used epoxy to attach a temporary bracket to the back of the remote. A couple of days later, the bracket disappeared. I don’t know if it broke free or was broken off. Whoever knows has not been forthcoming and it’s too small to see on video. Doesn’t matter at this point … it’s gone.
I roughed out a wood case to hold the remote and attached a bracket to it. Workable but temporary solution because it is too heavy. I need a lighter weight case that has a strong loop for cable attachment. Guessing a vacuum formed case, a vacuum formed mold for a resin case, 3D printing, or even a lightweight metal case are all potential routes to a better looking and lighter case.
Around the first of the year Ben Mergen @Ourfilthyhands may have built a model of the case, but I’m waiting word from him on status. We have a second remote that can be used as a model to capture the shape for whatever approach someone can volunteer to make.
Please let me know if this task is something you could take on and complete within a week or so. Thanks in advance.
