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
The Professional Motorbike Simulator developed by VR PROJECT. More info at http://motorbike-simulator.com/ & http://www.vrproject.eu/concepts/. We are manufacturer and supplier of simulators.

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
