I like that new way of driving the arms. Very clean and simple
It's surprisingly smooth for a 3D printed gear too. I was worried the gears would be too small for my machine, but it's working great:

What will drive the arm movement? I’m guessing adafruit or arduino, which controls the up and down motion?

Also, would there be thoughts to getting these pieces made in aluminum? Or maybe resin cast?

The plan is to use a 9g servo with a slot on the arm to convert the rotary motion to linear. It's cheap, it's strong, and it's easier than the other options I've tried!

My plan for this project is to have everything 3D printable. I don't have access to an end mill or CNC so I wanted to keep it simple.
