I need some guidance on a project I am attempting. My hope is, someone on this forum has already tried this. I am looking to measure a linear movement (very slowly). I have seen some projects including digital caliper readouts, I am looking for something that uses sensors, so read out the sensor, not a caliper hack.I have heard of hall sensors being used for this, encoders with stripes and such. So my question is, has anyone ever done a linear measurement with an accuracy of about 0.01mm (0.00039 inches). If so, could that someone point me in the right direction (type of sensor best for the job).Thanks.
No way to zoom in, good suggestion though. I am not on a tight budget for this project $200 is not a problem for this one. The conditions are clean, no need for error corrections or anything like that.

I'm going to measure camshafts -> valvelift
