    TRANSLATION IN PROGRESS



    Hi everybody

    here I have plans to make a 6DOF simulation engine 24v smolka, I think it is feasible and here is the material that will be used and not be modified.

    materials:
    -6 24v engines smolka
    -6 10K potentiometer without stop
    -1 Map Arduino Mega
    Sabertooth 2x32 -3
    -3 Power supply 24v 20a
    -12 Kneecaps 10
    -12 Thread rod 10
    -6 Bearings bearings 12

    For the rest of the materials is recovering, the plateau of the triangle is aluminum, base MDF with metal structure to stiffen.
    The use of spring is necessary in view of the engine power, this will help to alleviate the displacement and during the change of resistances since they adapt more deliver heated too much, so replace with 2.5 ohm against 5ohm originally.

    The angles and movement made by the board.
    Sway (2 rear drive off): middle / right 8cm
    left / right 16cm

    surge: center / before 8cm
    Back / Forward 16cm

    pitch: 15 ° angle

    roll: 10 ° angle

    heave: medium / low 4cm
    Low / High 8cm

    yaw: total angle 40 °


    Here is the wiring diagram.

    Pattern and size:

    [​IMG]

    An inclination of 10 ° was given to engines in relieving mechanism.
    [​IMG]

    The crank system with a 20cm rod, angle of 30 ° down to a working range of 120 °
    [​IMG]

    Manufacture of the triangle:

    A hole the drill was done to the place where it is the folding of the bar to ensure that it will flex cracking, but in my case the hole was not big enough of his strength has made the angle bending.
    [​IMG]

    Cutting the bar to get a 120 ° angle of 60 ° was therefore withdraw to the logic 180
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And here the plate with rivets to assemble it all, there is one of each dimension, remains every corner of the support the same technique.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Reinforcements at each corner of the triangle.
    [​IMG]

    Cut a metal plate to make three dish that will at each end of the triangle.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    And 3 pieces or it will house the kneecaps.
    Each of the support sides are 50cm.
    Cutting parts or will set the ball high for a 10 ° angle as the engines will be too.

    [​IMG]

    The three pieces welded onto the metal plate EVERY angles of the triangle.
    [​IMG]

    The support ball riveted on one side of the triangle, my crappy welds.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Instead of buying chamfered washers to earn some angle on the ball, I grind nuts in a roughly 45 °, its makes me a little economy and does it very well

    The part was removed from the support to obtain the correct size of the triangle formed by the supports.

    A strut made for two medium engines, there will be 4 bolts 8 on the turntable support and 4 bolts at the base of the strut.

    Here is the angle of reinforcement of two support more than to weld it all now.

    Edit a little damper lever arms to center the lower ball of the rod relative to the triangle, assembly all the knob engines running cables underneath the base and start a little my electronic cabinet + paste pad anti slip on each foot.

    That is an incredibly detailed overview @zigzag49, thanks so much for sharing it all.

    Have you tested it under load yet? It is very responsive unloaded.

    Very nice projecting and building, looking forward to seeing it finished!

    Thanks for all of the pictures

    The simulator is almost finished, I board not post the pictures at one time on the first post. Coming more photos and video. thank you

    Photo of all it gives you an idea of the template.

    Video of all except traction loss effects.
    In terms of sway and surge I edit motion effects for that slopes slightly after that is a personal choice because I do not really like the movement of the plate has a horizontal, its been too on / off and felt does not last.

    Here is the code written by wanegain and configuration in simtool.

    Thank you to all the members pcshm for helping me in my project and encourage any particularly momoclic which is the Sketchup designers and designer of a large part of the simulation and wanegain the engineer programming part in terms of code and setting.

    Thank you simon.;)
    I put the rest on my second post, it does not reach the first wanted me to take it, remains the translation. I're not finished yet, and still finish the settings of axes in simtool.

    Great work! Do you have possibility to set springs if driver have different weight?

    Zig Zag , excellent work and once again a member of this forum shows the possibilities , really nice compact design that does exactly what you need , Well done , and even bigger thanks for sharing your work ,

    My project is not too different and seeing as im still having trouble with the Kangaroo card setup , i belive you and silentchill have a great setup in the ardunio and direct contact to the Sabertooth controllers .. to use the term, Your setup is WICKED :)
