I had issue getting a strong and stiff bracket for the RoboFocus on my Feather Touch focusers.
So I decided to solve the problem myself by making an extra bracket to consolidate the one sold
If you have a similar issue, feel free to use the STL file on that page to make your own bracket.

That's excellent work. 3D printing is really coming of age. In the past it used to be the privilege of only those with huge R+D budgets, now its available to everyone.

 

So making a bespoke bracket for your telescope is now easier than ever before with this technology.

 

Thanks for sharing this solution here.
