Hundreds of coffees, endless nights of debugging and coding, and countless feedback by our beta testers led to this new major release. SimTools 2.4 is probably the version with the most upgrades and improvements in a single release ever. Look at everything Dustin has included: SimTools 2.4 all features.Dismiss Notice

They say the simple ideas are always the best. Here @Pit provides a simple but very effective way to add heave to seat shaker designs, by adding a hinged plate under the pivot point.

Here is a compact adjustable spring assisted approach to heave by @noorbeast: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/dx-racer-compact-simulator.5866/page-15#post-83752
Heave is not easy to implement and there have been many different approaches, here @ericRacer uses an air jack: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/my-new-3dof-4motors-arduinoméga-sabertooth.4926/
Another variation of multiple spring assisted heave by @willaupuis: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/3-dof-vertical-heave-francais-anglais-by-google.6344/
@rundmg added custom 3D printed parts to expand the case mod idea even further: http://www.xsimulator.net/community...f-simulator-conversion.5914/page-4#post-88739

Taking a different path @dontcarefilmer is developing a prototype working model of a 360° motion simulator to both work out the practicalities and refine the code needed to work with SimTools, see here for details: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/prototype-pitch-roll-full-rotation.5804/
another 360° yaw simulator

Here a foldable simulator by @mazak515
@HoiHman made his killer rig so it folds into a smaller size for moving and storage: http://www.xsimulator.net/community...n-to-my-80-20-gs-4-rig.6294/page-5#post-72954
Another approach is a keyboard stand and @Raulmerlos uses Velcro to keep the keyboard in place: http://www.xsimulator.net/community...otors-and-arduino-nano.5667/page-2#post-59455
