Looking into servos (not to be confused with stepper motors). I’ve always avoided motors and servos, ever since my HND days and beyond. I don’t know why, I guess I just liked to concentrate on transistors and discrete logic, but now I think it is time to overcome that fear.
Need some PCB design software? Well you have a few options, free and not free. These are CadSoft Eagle and Novarm DipTrace or Altium respectively. The full Altium package costs around $15000. There is, obviously AutoCAD, but which hobbist has money for that? Although there is AutoCAD 360, which is free. However, which one is right for you?
