You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
The lights for orientation is a good idea.
Your intuitive use of the keys I am quite jealous of.
@elyxandra yes. Cool video, but doesn't fit the movie. Just a little bit much soft core porn.
I know I'm getting old now, because I legit liked it less because of that.
I could not believe how good this movie was. The characters were real and awesome.
DC movie.. With characters!
Re: belt vs direct drive.
Usage of a modern material belt would alleviate much of the stretching of a pure rubber belt.
Timing belts have a kevlar or similar material in them which doesn't stretch like rubber or steel over time.
From the rest of a product design standpoint:
Can't really speak to any of the aluminum machining bits, other than if you have thin metal plates, you run a much higher risk of some form of vibration showing up vs a solid chunk of metal (more mass is usually less vibration.) So in this case, I think more metal = more cost = higher quality. I would presume some testing or modeling went into this.
I think the wires are dumb from both a practical and design aspect. Should have at least a protective sheath. It also just LOOKS weak compared to the rest of the high quality thing.
