Project - 3D Printed Servo Ball Screw Actuator | in Basic Circuits

Working on a new project requiring (12) ballscrew actuators prompted R&D'ing cost effective solution.This led to many months of developing a 3D printed ball screw with an encoder and hardware cost of 25$/each. Multiple configurations posted for different travel lengths.
