after a few months of calibrating and tweaking [beta_01], it was clear things weren’t as stable or precise as I’d like. I think much of the instability was because of some necessary kludges (ugh, zip ties…) and that I used printed parts for a lot of the assembly. I knew [beta_01] was always just a […]
