Firgelli L16-P Linear Actuator, 100mm Stroke, 150:1 gear ratio, 12 volts @ $100
LAC (Linear Actuator Control Board) @ $0
Subtotal: $100.00
Tax: $0.00
UPS Ground Shipping: $15.58
Grand Total: $115.58




Electric motor in case like this?

You need something better,something with more muscle and more cool.

Something like this:

@Hukkel, Thank you for watching and commenting!

@Paslis, Honored to have you watching, and Congrats on MOTY!

@Pranja, that is cool. this project has inspired idea of engine block theme chassis someday



Concept for actuator arm. (not final)



Trianguler pieces are the mounting base for the Actuator body. The other pieces are from earlier design for actuator "yoke" that we've scraped for now. We should have the machined rods for the cover in this afternoon, for assembly of the 30x ribs that make the cover.

Mad power lol.

This is looking amazing, will be quite a beauty when altogether.

I definitely prefer raw sketchup models to really nicely rendered models, makes the actual project look far nicer.
