That’s pretty slick! I was going to mention you’re going to get all kinds of drag, but then remembered this is a direct drive, so the bowden is before the extruder motor. My delta has a “flying extruder” now so the bowden tube is shorter, makes for less strings because of filament lash in the tube.
Yes, that’s a hard drive as a counter weight….
