    I have been planning this for months but before I go ahead with the build is this even possible with SimTools
    so the design is basic 6dof with another motor controlling a continuous yaw rotation on a base plate. like this one see picture

    use a platform that rotates and a suitable gearmotor

    the mechanical side is not the problem for me its the software side. I am trying to wrap my head around sketchup and sketchyphysics so I can test the build. that turn table is class tho I will be saving that to my favorites

    You should be able to allocate the motion of the yaw to a motor using simtools

    I suggest you build a model using rc servo motors and an arduino to prove concept
