    Hy guys I have a static rig and I want to update with the scn6 actuators.
    Now the rig structure is on wood material.

    The next step is to convert this in alluminium structure.
    I want use some free software for the project, like my cad or similar.
    For the alluminium component I want to use motedis component.
    Is the cheaper alluminium component that I find in this moment.

    compared to the initial configuration I had to review the tv supports. in this way they are wider in order to receive the bracket that supports the actuators

    Have you mounted the actuators yet and do you have a video of your rig in action?

    Not yet, before buying the actuators, since they are not cheap, I wanted to test simtoll with the f1 2018 plugin and assetto corsa competizione.
