Here's some progress on the drive nut that's going to be made with injection molding process in solid Dupont Delrin (AKA acetal) plastic material. This will give the drive nut good strength and a more wear resistance.

Injection molding filling heat simulation to visualize the flow of the plastic timing.

Mock up mold structure for v5 of the design.
