Articulated Camera Arm: A Blend of Functionality and AestheticsOrigin of the Idea: The journey of the Articulated Camera Arm at Lavigne Labs began when we identified a need that couldn't be met with existing products. Inspired by Robin Renzetti's design, we embarked on creating a unique, highly functional camera arm using a combination of modern materials and skilled craftsmanship. Design and Material Selection:
- Innovative Construction: The camera arm features carbon fiber tubes with steel spheres at the ends, connected by friction plates, allowing for a wide range of motion.
- Material Harmony: The use of carbon fiber, polished steel spheres, and red aluminum pressure plates creates not only a functional tool but also a visually striking piece.
- Engineering Precision: Achieving perfect roundness of the spheres was crucial and challenging, involving the intricate process of lapping – a skill that was mastered during the project.
- Detailed Fabrication: Every component was meticulously modeled in 3D, sourced, and assembled to construct this elegant camera arm.
