    Welcome @RobertH.

    I see you have posted the same question on the frex thread.

    It would help if you start your own project thread here and detail what you have done so far, including pictures of all settings, as it could well be a configuration issue: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/commercial-simulators-and-peripherie.52/

    Welcome @Alexis David Zapata.

    You have come to the right place, there is a really active community here who freely give of their time and expertise.

    You will find plenty to get you started in the FAQs, from design software, dimension of sims, to PSUs, pots, motors, JRKs, Arduinos and Motor Monsters and more: 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 you plan a DIY simulator for your own personal use then when you are ready please start your own project thread here: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/diy-motion-simulator-projects.22/

    If you plan a simulator with the possibility that others may commercially use or benefit from it then you should start a project thread here: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/commercial-simulators-and-peripherie.52/

    Good luck with your project.

    sur ce forum, il est d'usage de mettre la traduction en anglais de ce que tu marque en français ou autre

    On this forum, it is customary to put the translation into English of what you mark in French or other

    Hey guys.
    I've seen some really cool projects around here and thought I could give it a shot as well (soon, hopefully!).

    Hello to everybody. I have been reading this forum for a while now and like others decided to build a Motion simulator for myself. I will post the plans I have so far and some ideas for motors and control electronics. Look forward to your responses and suggestions.

    Just wanted to say hello to xsimulator community, but decided to extend just a bit in my first post :)
    I've been always a big racing fan, occasional amateur racer, and was interested in sim racing. In the past few months I've stumbled upon OSW & VR. By digging deeper into idea of building a diy OSW rig, I discovered fascinating examples of diy motion platforms. Currently taking my time reading and building my shopping list. In the nearest future I will start my project thread in hope to get answers, proposals from the community.
    See ya!

    Hi my name is Thad. I am new and was told to start here. I am building a 2dof chair but had no idea it was called that till I found this site. Not much of a writer as I am a reader. But four more post to go to prove I'm not a bot

    Bonjours la communauté
    Je suis novice dans la construction d'un simulateur 2 DOF
    Pour commencé :
    ARDUINO UNO, monster motor shield
    MONSTER MOTO SHIELD
    POT 10K 360 NON STOP
    2 MOTEURS ESSUIE GLACE
    Pour l'instant, je lis le tuto, j'ai téléchargé simtools et cherche code arduino monster moto shield. et tous conseilles des experts et autres avisés.
