    Check the FAQs, in particular the Design and Build sections, there are a bunch of options there:

    PGsaw motors from Canada, ship internationally:

    3Dprint direct pot mount: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/3dof-seat-mover.11103/#post-143599

    Use suitable flexible coupling to direct mount pots: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/how-to-connect-protect-a-potentiometer.13/

    I use Hall sensors rather than traditional pots, as they won't break if over rotated, have excellent resolution and long life, Element14 has these worldwide: https://au.element14.com/bi-technol...fs/sensor-hall-0-2v-20v-to-10v-pin/dp/2319662

    Use SimCalc to get your head around design Vs physics to work out which motor best suits: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...e-linear-speed-and-forces-of-your-design.270/

    You have a number of control board options, which you will find in the FAQs, but I would suggest either JRKs for ease of set up, or Sabertooth using the SMC3 Arduino code and settings app.
