    Email me, we will short it out.

    Can I ask, what servomotors do you have? What is the servo drive part number?

    Thanks

    The AMC-AASD15A use pulse/Dir control method and is not reading back the servomotor encoder position as its not necessary. Its actually more advanced while having simpler connections and can calibrate the servomotor home position using torque signal feedback from the servo drive.

    But yes, the issue is you DONT HAVE SERVO DRIVE... All you have is a BLDC brushless speed controller. You could try your luck with Odrive perhaps although it will be more expensive solution, three Odrive would cost you about 360USD...

    But maybe you could interface to FlyPT esp32 system, see here:

    Similar to what I made, the idea is to work like a spring, and round to easily rotate to both sides.
    Mine is petg, with 2.5mm from what I remember.

    This wheel is a guide fix at the top of the ballscrew, it prevents the rod from vibrating( anti wobble ring) in the tube when the bearing travels in the low position and when the coupling is misaligned !
