do you have the arduino software available? i wrote some code but it was pretty crude. the UI was pretty shit, but the acceleration and decel at the start and end worked well

hey i like the slider, i have made a couple of sliders myself

and

im currently working on making it into a 3 axis rail instead of a single axis rail i have designed a gimbal and posted it here.

but im afraid i now feel out of my depth in programming the electronics (have a working electronic design) how about a collaboration? or maybe you just adopt the project and see where it leads? i have managed to get a dynamic perceptions nmx 3 axis controller for my setup so the incentive for me to pursue it further is no longer there but it would be good to apply some pressure to the big boys and get their prices down!

as an aside you can see some of my work with the rail here on my youtube channel

Hi alanhinchcliffe,
That's OK, I want to get more help and I had done a lot of work for the slider and some of them are the same like you said, and I have some same targets with you. Just email me: swanglei.wang@dfrobot.com.
