Build a working model to test your design ideas

Here @insanegr shows how to use @eaorobbie's Arduino code to build a 2DOF RC servo driven model to test out your design ideas: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/2dof-simulator-servo-model.6851/#post-7727

You can grab @Iain Dodds modification of @eaorobbie's code so you can use the Adafruit 16-Channel PWM / Servo HAT: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...tor-proof-of-concept-model.15376/#post-207505

You can start small. If you are really adventurous and are looking for the ultimate test model then check out @hooshang's impressive 6DOF model: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/6dof-platform-with-small-dc-motors.5634/

Thanks to @Leo Salo you can use a RaberryPi to drive your RC model simulator: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/3dof-concept-model-using-raspberrypi.10570/#post-136827

If you have a 3D printer, or at least access to one via the 3DHubs, then @EricSteijlen has provided the stl file for this really neat 6DOF model: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...ype-with-arduino-and-servos.9504/#post-121437
