    Welcome @Giantruck1.

    You can duel post in Italian as long as you include and English translation.

    We have bi-lingual speakers from many different language groups so if Google Translate really messes it up they can help clarify what was intended.

    Hello
    I am from Spain. My English is very bad. I am sorry. I will use Google translate.
    Some time ago I started my 2dof and still has a lot of work. I'm slow.
    I'm doing the design freecad. Most of the structure is completed. Now I'm waiting to arrive Monster Moto Shield me to continue with electronics.
    I have much to learn from the forum and see if I can bring something to the forum.

    A greeting.

    Hola
    Soy de España. Mi inglés es muy malo. Lo siento. Utilizaré Google translate.
    Hace tiempo que empecé mi 2dof y todavía le queda mucho trabajo. Voy lento.
    Estoy haciendo el diseño en Freecad. La mayor parte de la estructura está terminada. Ahora estoy esperando a que me lleguen las Monster Moto Shield para continuar con la electrónica.
    Tengo mucho que aprender del foro y a ver si puedo aportar algo al foro.

    Un saludo.

    Welcome @Omer Burak.

    The LFS game plugin is included when you install SimTools, you just need to build your RC model and hook it up, see here for details: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/build-a-working-model-to-test-your-design-ideas.216/

    You will find plenty to get you started in the FAQs, including RC model details, plus design software, dimension of sims, to PSUs, pots, motors, JRKs, Arduinos and Motor Monsters and more: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/

    We have a glossary for all those acronyms we tend to use, which will help you decipher some descriptions: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/glossary-of-acronyms-and-names.66/

    When you are ready please start your own project thread here: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/diy-motion-simulator-projects.22/

    Feel free to ask questions on your build thread, the members here give freely of both their time and expertise.

    Good luck with your project.

    Welcome @Omer Burak
    The LFS is included in SimTools.
    Download LFS from here and run it once.
    Exit and patch the game with the GameManager.
    Run it again together with GameManager and GameEngine.
    Voilà.
    You might want to adjust the MinMax levels in GameEngine Tuning Center.

    Help,

    Hi,
    I'm new one on building motion simulator.
    I have 4 actuators as shown on pics (24V, 150 mm, 750N). I have frame and and all equipment for sim racing, so what do I need more to make motion simulator?
    Where to buy controller for 4 actuators, exept frex, if it is in Europe will be nice but not prior? I like Versaro motion system as principle guyde.
    Do I need power suply or controller have power for actuators?
    I need all conection procedure if You can help me.

    PC: MSI 1070 gaming x, I7 6700 skylake, Asus rog maximus VIII hero, SSD, Fnatec CSW V2 and V3, formula rim, heusinkveld handbrake, DIY buttonbox, win 7 64 pro

    Hello everyone,
    My name is Thierry and I live in Belgium.
    I am trying to build a car simulator 4DOF with 4 SCN6.
    I chose to use SimTools because it seems to me the simplest to use.
    Moreover I am happy to register on this forum because I know that you are more experienced than me
    and that you can advise me if something is not working.
    Thank you to welcome me on this forum.

    Hello everyone!
    I've used arduino before but I'm completely new to Simtools. I'm planning on modifying an existing 2 DOF hydraulic piston chair to 3 DOG. I hope to learn more and am excited to get to know this community!

    Welcome @mjgutie2.

    You have come to the right place, there is a really active community here who freely give of their time and expertise and SimTools is soon to get a total revamp with the release of SimTools 2.0 and expanded functionality: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/simtools-2-0-question-and-answer.8175/

    You will find plenty of interest in the FAQs: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/

    If something sounds odd then look it up in the glossary: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/glossary-of-acronyms-and-names.66/

    If your existing sim is a DIY project then please start your own project thread here and post details about the existing control and hardware: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/diy-motion-simulator-projects.22/

    If your sim is a commercial product then create a thread here and post the hardware and control details: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/commercial-simulators-and-peripherie.52/

    Good luck with your upgrade project.

    Hi everyone! New to motion sim building and been reading this forum for a week now in the search for inspiration for my first build(I've decided on a 2DOF)

    In my everyday life im studying to become a programmer, and my highschool was specialized in electronics and IT, so I've created a few robotics projects before, very simple ones mind you :p

    I already salvaged some old 24v wheel chair motors and have been looking at motor drivers and so on for the arduino as I've tried making a few projects in school with that.
    I'm a bit worried how I will be getting the communication between Sim tools, to the arduino and further on to the enginies with the correct movements? Like in the limits of the engines and my build and so on if that makes any sense?

    The H-bridge I've been looking at is an ordinary Direction/PWM bridge designed for two motors at a maximum of 36v(This one)
    Thanks a lot for the help in advance and I cant wait to share my project with you guys when I begin the actual building! :)
