    I am experimenting with a design for a 6 DOF build, it's fundamental design layout is a typical 3-6 Stewart platform.

    Im having issues when it comes to assigning axis percentages in simtools.

    For some DOF, what is assigned for one direction (negative) isn't necessary the opposite for the other direction (positive).

    For example, ROLL is straight foward. The assignments to go left are the same to go right. So to go ledt an axis may be set to 100, for right it would be -100.

    But take sway, to go to the left one axis needs to be assigned say 20, but to go right instead of -20 it needs to be -60.

    How to people over come this issue?
