    Hello,

    Before building my 6dof sim I decided to learnt as much as possible building a tiny Stewart Platform using RC servos and Arduino UNO.

    I also used robot simulationn software V-Rep to test CAD platform before building real one.

    After some work done I am ready to show you the final result:


    Next Step, I will test this tiny platform as a sim using simtools an Rfactor2...

    Some details about the platform:
    • I designed the whole platform using SolidWorks soft.
    • Platform & Base was laser cutted using .STL files extracted from SolidWorks
    • Arms were 3D printed
    • I used thread rod and RC rod end for Links
    • 4x 1.5V AA battery as power supply for the servos
    (Some pictures are attached )

    did you manage to simulate? do you have the codes and set ups?
