Compact 12 Tool Umbrella ATC

This is a draft design for a compact umbrella style ATC tool carousel for TTS tools holders. It uses a geneva wheel mechanism for positioning the tools and a ball screw for the 200mm X travel.
It’s very compact, only 450mm in total width and has a homing sensor for cross-checking geneva disk as well as hard- and proximity switches on the X travel in both directions.

Next up, is the cover for the tools, which will have an auto-opening door as well as auto air-cleaning of the tools.
