    I somewhat remember that a design goal of the toolchanger was to be able to add linear encoders easily and space was made to mount them. Which particular linear encoders were intended to be used and how would I mount them?

    Linear encoders for closed-loop motion? I'm not sure if this was the original intent, but Duet3D is planning to produce some hardware which can accept encoder feedback.
