    That’s very cool! You 3d printed the screw and “nut” pieces? How is wear on those?

    Very interesting project & congrats!

    WOW!...
    I didn't know that the 3D printed mechanism could withstand so much effort. Have you used ABS? Where can I find the STL files to see them please? Congratulations on the ingenuity to adapt and overcome construction problems.

    Hello, congratulations on the project! which firmware do you use? Because my 360 degree potentiometer, when it passes 180 degrees, the green line on the utility comes out and appears at the top and the engine turns off! Do you have any idea how to resolve this? thanks!

    Very interesting project also following it on YouTube, it would be interesting to see how much max Lbs pressure it can exert. As mentioned before what type of material did you print it out of?
    Great job well done, it would be interesting to play with the mechatronics of the design to see where it could fit on other sim designs.
