Belt drive version

The belt drive version of the nano motion pancake is highly accurate and a great option for sliders. It can even support loads traveling vertically. We'll be providing 3D models of attachment brackets for popular 3rd party sliders, that you can print if you have a 3D printer. If you are building your own rig you'll need to make sure the belt aligns correctly to the pancake for accurate linear motion. We'll be publishing guidelines for DIY rigs in the coming months.

Capstan drive version

The capstan drive version of the motion pancake uses a rope wound round a specially designed miniature capstan to provide horizontal linear motion. Because it uses a simple cord, it's very easy to use on your custom built rigs. It has the added advantage that, unlike the belt drive version, the capstan drive motion pancake can operate without precise alignment, albeit with a slight reduction in accuracy.
