Nice work.
What is the length of travel?

Ah it is 45 mm.
Excellent! Just what I need.

it would be good if you can to glue a piece of rubber to the both ends , so it would be much quiet :)

I'm just starting in 3d printing so I'm sure I'll ask some inept questions. Anyways, I know I need one of these for a punch head I need to make: is this thing scale-able? I don't need it to be this big for my purpose. Thanks for any attention paid to this.

now i finally now what this is called. I've seen this in a youtube video and copied that and now i see this here. I'm trying to build a 3D POV Matrix with it over on http://hackaday.io/project/1148-Locomatrix---3D-POV---a-different-approachhttp://hackaday.io/project/114... and use a dc motor and a gearbox. How did you do your gears?

Thanks, well the idea is several hundreds of years old, but the implementation is mine.

cool idea ;-) is this your idea?
