As Neil Mendoza explains:

The software calculates the velocity that the motor needs to be moving using a PID algorithm that takes the motor’s encoder position as input and gives a velocity as output. This velocity is then sent over UDP to the stepper motor. The hammer head drops based on the slow rotation of a cam that the hammer rests on.

This was designed using Autodesk Fusion 360 and Inventor. You can find the guide here.
