    Hi all,

    Searched around quite heavily for answers and documentation on building sfx-150's and I cannot find much of anything on the internet about which specific parts are different and to order, including the building changes from 100mm to 150mm.

    This was the only thread I could find:
    https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/sfx-100-ballscrews-350mm-quality-anti-backlash.14807/

    some good info basically just ordering everything +100mm longer, e.g., extrusions, hollow shaft and ball screw for 150mm throw.

    The other question I have is with the software/hardware setup, albeit novice to all this, I read in another thread that I would have to use the Thanos controller and SRS. Are these basically the only differences to building SFX-150's vs the 100's? And, is there any supporting documentation on how to wire up a thanos controller if the hardware and software will be different over an arduino controller setup with the sfx-100's?

    Thanks in advance
