    Excess cable is coiled up inside the Nave case. I haven't noticed the controllers getting hot at all, they seem to run quite cool. No problems with this setup since July 2019.

    Having accidentally left my Driver power on for 24 hours, i popped the lid off my Nearly sealed Enclosure ( simple Wire exit holes on the bottom side of case) And the Drivers were warm, but No where close to being Hott or in danger,

    Curious as well @Luka Usenicnik Do you also do the parts for the Item24 stuff ?

    did you make any modifications to the shaft as well, considering the linear bearing is inside the bottom cover?
