    Hello.
    I live in Brazil, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, I have a G29 and a cockpit made from PVC pipes.
    I want to expand the sensation when playing and for that reason, after a lot of research in this forum, I will start my project, with valuable information that I obtained here and my knowledge will build my first 2DOF.

    I know little about electronics and programming, but with the help of this forum I will be able to solve all my doubts.
    I also hope to make my contribution to this forum.
    Thank you all for sharing the knowledge.
    Good luck...

    Olá.
    Moro no Brasil, no estado do Rio Grande do Sul, tenho um G29 e um cockpit feito em casa de tubos de pvc.

    https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/sharing-cockpits-dimensions.6789/#post-193295.

    Quero ampliar a sensação ao jogar e por isso depois de muitas pesquisas neste fórum, darei início ao meu projeto, com informações valiosas que obtive aqui e meus conhecimentos construirei meu primeiro 2DOF.
    Conheço pouco de eletro eletrônica e programação, mas com o auxílio deste fórum conseguirei resolver todas as minhas dúvidas.
    Espero também dar minha contribuição para este fórum.
    Obrigado a todos por compartilhar o conhecimento.
    Boa sorte...

    Which you use depends on the controller you plan on using.

    I don't use either, my rig uses JRKs, but if I was going with an Arduino then I would use a Sabertooth. They are a bit expensive but pretty much bullet proof.

    Sabertooth is out of my budget for now, I will choose the H Monster Bridge.
    As I already have 01 Monster, I will buy engines that suit the power of the H 30A Bridge.
    Thanks.

    Muito bom ver outro brasileiro por aqui. Estou iniciando meus projetos também para um simulador 2DOF, porém o cockpit será mais elaborado pois futuramente pretendo ver se é possivel fazer dele um produto.

    Sobre os esquemas elétricos, acredito que a segunda opção seja melhor. Os MM são ótimos pra isso, você vai precisar colocar dissipadores dele também, daqueles que compra para plaquinhas.

    Outra coisa que queria ver é qual motor pretende usar, ando procurando um que tenha como inserir um encoder.



    Very nice to see another brazillian here. Im also starting my projects for a 2DOF Sim.

    About the schemes, I believe that the second option is better, the MMs are great for it, but you will need to put some heat sink over the chips.

    Another question is about the motor that you intend to use, im looking for one model with the possibility to insert a encoder.

    Hello Leonardo.
    Thanks for the tips, I already have the sinks and soon I'll post the images of all my electrical and mechanical parts. As I mentioned I don't know much about electricity but in this forum I have already learned a lot. The MMs need to test as it was indicated to do, just need to find the programming for the arduino for the test.
    The engines I will use will be these:

    https://produto.mercadolivre.com.br...cking_id=8de566ab-f2a1-4aa6-bde1-d20d33e8b415


    I will try to make low-cost equipment, and then, if it gets better, I will improve, maybe I will do a 4DOF or 6DOF, but I need to understand everything first ... let's talk and exchange experiences here. Could you see your project?
    Good luck.

    -

    Olá Leonardo.
    Obrigado pela dicas, já tenho os dissipadores e logo mais colocarei as imagens de todas as minhas peças elétricas e mecânicas. Como mencionei não entendo muito de eletricidade mas neste fórum já aprendi muito. O MMs preciso testar como foi indicado fazer, só preciso achar a programação para o arduino para o teste.
    Os motores que usarei serão estes:



    Tentarei fazer um equipamento de baixo custo, e depois se ficar bom melhorarei, quem sabe farei um 4DOF ou 6DOF, mas preciso entender antes tudo...vamos falando e trocando experiências aqui. Poderia ver seu projeto?
    Boa sorte.

    Bom ver a comunidade brasileira crescendo aqui.
    Eu não usei Arduino no meu projeto, mas eu entendo um pouco de programação e da parte elétrica em geral. Já meu conhecimento em mecânica é bem limitado e é onde eu tive sérias dificuldades na minha montagem...

    Desejo sucesso no seu projeto!

    -----------------------------------

    Good to see the Brazilian community growing here.
    I did not use Arduino in my project, but I undestand a bit about programming and electrical parts in general. My knowledge in mechanics is very limited though and that is where I had serious difficulties in my assembly ...

    I wish you success in your project!

    Thank you so much! I'm still kind of lost in electrical and mechanical ...
    Could you see your project?
    Would you have an easy MM test for me to do?

    Muitíssimo obrigado! Eu ainda estou meio perdido em elétrica e mecânica...
    Poderia ver seu projeto?
    Você teria um teste dos MMs fácil pra eu fazer?

    Eu diria pra você buscar motores mais fortes que esse e talvez com menor rotação. Utilize o SimCalc (https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...e-linear-speed-and-forces-of-your-design.270/) que é uma ferramenta que anda me ajudando bem. Logo mais vou postar o meu projeto aqui, irei iniciar as montagens e testes no mês que vem possivelmente.

    Boa sorte aí, estarei acompanhando seus posts e do @BrazilianGuy .


    I would say to you look for stronger motors than that and maybe with lower rotation. Use SimCalc (https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...e-linear-speed-and-forces-of-your-design.270/), it's a great tool and is helping me a lot. Soon i will be posting my own project here, tests will be started next month probably.

    Good luck, i will be following your posts and BrazilianGuy aswell.

    Se você tiver duvidas para usar o SimCalc, eu posso te mandar uns exemplos, na verdade o próprio software é bem explicativo.

    If you have any doubs with SimCalc, i can send some exemples, actualy the software itself is very self explanatory.
