    I have recently bought an Ultimaker2 3D printer and decided that a good first project would to be create a replica f1 wheel that I can attach to my fanatec universal hub. I have been modelling the wheel in solidworks and have got to the point where I need to decide what to do about the clutch paddles.

    I have ordered a Leo Bodnar Sli-f1 so I presume there must be some kind of electronic modules for the wheel mounted clutch paddles

    Can anybody advise me on what I need?

    I will get some pictures up of my build as things progress.

    I think the analog options for the SLI are potentiometers, or using hall effect sensors.

    Thanks for the reply.

    So presumably if I use potentiometers for the clutch paddles I can then calibrate their range of motion within the sli software?
