That looks promising. It's really not a bad deal considering that it comes with the stepper motors. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Abhijit,

I don't have a pdf for this heliostat, but if you go to the first post you will see that there is a Sketchup file that you can download. Sketchup is a free (for individuals) CAD program that you can download and view or modify the design file. I have sort of abandoned this design and am trying to build more out of metal this time around, but it would definitely be cool to see someone finish it.

Hope that helps,
Gabriel
