Edelkrone, cutting-edge maker of motion-control systems for filmmaking, has announced an innovative new tripod head aimed at keeping costs low and quality high.
The FlexTILT Head 3D is the first release from the newly-launched ORTAK line. ORTAK is a co-manufacturing approach, in which consumers with 3D-printing capabilities can purchase the materials and plans for a product, print them at home, and save money in the process. This gives consumers the ability to customize designs and color to suit their needs.
The FlexTILT Head 3D is the 3D-printable version of the Edelkrone’s best selling FlexTILT Head 2, a tripod head with pan and tilt capabilities for a wide variety of applications and configurations.
The ORTAK method is a step into a future where more and more people will have 3D printers, and with them, the ability to manufacture many aspects of products at home. “Edelkrone will manufacture the critical parts, such as CNC machined aluminum joints (or possibly electronic components in the future) to minimize cost, while making sure the end product works flawlessly,” says the company.
You can purchase the FlexTILT Head 3D, download the 3D model files, and watch an assembly video all on Edelkrone’s website.
