DIY photo turntable

31 posts in this topic

Let me know if you want help making one! My current setup consists of:

  • Arduino UNO (or compatible, with USB cable)
  • 28BYJ-48 stepper motor

  • ULN2003 stepper motor driver (to connect the motor to the Arduino)

  • 6 male to female jumper wires

  • LEGO chassis

  • Modified reaper base to act as a platform

I managed to find a cheap Arduino-compatible kit on a slow boat from China for ~30$. It came with all the required electronic components listed above plus a ton of other stuff. You might be able to find just the required components for less, but probably not much less. The construction is a bit more involved than the clock version because it requires some programming to get the camera and the Arduino to sync up. The code itself is very simple in Linux, but will probably be slightly different for different operating systems.
