    My Motion Simulator:
    Hello everyone, since the beginning of the year I have known this community and I was amazed with all the projects that I could see throughout this time, I decided to venture into this world and start creating my own Stewart platform model, initially I started with a small 3dof model with Arduino, later I decided to make the jump to a 6dof also with servos and Arduino.

    For this little project use:
    • 6 MG995 servomotors
    • 12 ball joints (Ky-RC M4)
    • Arduino UNO R3
    • Power supply (S-250-12)
    • Voltage regulator (LM2596)
    • For the structural part, try to make it as cheap as possible before sending one to be 3D printed, so it is made of cardboard (waiting for the 3D printed structure to arrive)
    Software use:
    • Arduino IDE (Trying different codes that I was able to compile from different forum posts)
    • SimTools

    (In future updates I will upload links to the publications that were useful to me on this journey, since at this moment I do not have them well identified)


    Now excited to achieve the construction of this Stewart platform project with the help of his publications, I made the decision to make a larger 3Dof platform made with linear actuators and inspired by another project seen on YouTube and later found the post in this community (https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/ultra-cheap-budget-6dof-project.14392/) since I was lucky to be able to find many of the components at a very affordable price, I hope you wish me luck with this new project.

    Any questions about the project I will be happy to answer
