    hey @Flymen what is the range of travel to you set you actuators?
    i think the others builders use 500mm ball screw and v-slot, but end up using 12-14 inches of effective actuator travel..

    im just wondering how you fair with you 600m design...

    Hi ,
    Everything goes well , the only reason why i have 600 mm and not 500mm is because I had three of them *free* at my job if not 500mm is good too !
    the only mistake I did is buy 3 others cheap from Aliexpress ( made Japon ) who are very diferent and had not the same friction or resistance !!! and with this problem my set up with SMC3 is diferent for them ..like
    one have a curve , others have some scratch and make a lot of noise .

    got it.
    totally understand!

    so bascially you have about 14" of workable actuator travel?
