Release Version 2

After months of use, both in the beta test and with Version 1, many suggestions for improvement were made. The biggest area of improvement is smoothness. Glassworkers want it to move as smoothly as possible

Here's a list of improvements planned for Version 2

Ball bearings on the horizontal arm to increase smoothness of motion
Ball bearings and new magnet design on twist axis to increase smoothness of motion
Additional control mode that locks twist axis while allowing vertical motion
New software with many improved functions
Hard stops on horizontal motion to prevent over-rotation
Metal mesh covering on magnet wires to protect against heat

One problem was the drag of the magnet sliding on the plate in the twist axis
Here's the prototype of the new twist axis magnet mount. The weight of the head is carried by the bearings, while the magnet is free to move when it's de-energized
