    I know this topic is a bit old, But an awesome job there @AldoZ..... I was contemplating how to build my self supported 3 dof, but I can see using the spring will reduce my actuator costs
    I might follow your principles............ Good Job

    Sounds good @dukabmw , but I think you will need to start a new thread.
    I suspect Aldoz has gone quiet on this. A few of us have tried to contact him with no luck.
