Late last year I was given the task to design and manufacture a new internal cage for Aerial Advantages CineFlex Elite. There is currently only one other company in the world who has completed a similar modification. The new cage gave the ability to quickly swap the original ARRI M for a RED Dragon 6k cinema camera. The initial and 3D design took two weeks, once this was complete the new cage was 3D printed for test fitting. Minor adjustments to the design were made after testing and the final cage was produced from aviation grade aluminium and brass on our in-house CNC machine. The whole process from design, testing, manufacturing and final trialling was three months.
This CineFlex Elite is now currently in service and available for hire through Aerial Advantage.
