    The Actuonix actuators which are used quite often (little bit pricey) have a potentiometer ( Feedback Potentiometer: 2.75 kOhm/mm ± 30%, 1% linearity)
    Do you think this will be sufficient ?
    My plan is to use t5 lead screw actuators nema 11 homebrew design.

    There is an other code source which looks very interesting for building these type of robots

    Hello Kevin,
    I’d like to build a linear hexapod as well. Did you get any further? As seen on youtube Dan already built a linear actuated hexapod (https://youtu.be/btxdl1TQBTw) but I don’t think the code is available in the git.
    My understanding of Dans code is the same, I guess we could change it and it would get ‘shorter’ .. I will try to figure out how … (Don’t know if I am capable of doing it due to my limited programming knowledge)
