    My Motion Simulator:
    3DOF, DC motor, Arduino, Motion platform
    Hey yall, goods morning (its 8Am here)

    First of all thanks for all the amazing info you hold here, i took a step back on my rig due to finals season on uni, but its rolling again now. Heres an update in case any fellow Brazilians are starting to build (i havent seen none, yet)

    One thing that is important to mention, motors from the list were pretty hard to find, so i got a lookalike, if anyone in latin america is struggling i am using a 35Nm, 85RPM, 12V "motoredutor" from the brand J11, looks like a big wiper motor, but a little stronger.

    I followed @RufusDufus detailed tutorial on Arduino + IBT2 build (https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...3dof-motor-driver-and-windows-utilities.4957/) And it worked perfectly.

    I am currently testing on a single engine, SMC3 tests have been sucessfull, i guess the next step is using simtools

    Heres the shopping list (i'm new so idk if i should post links, if anyone needs it DM me) :

    - 1 'motoredutor' motor [82 RPM, 35Nm, 12V, 20A]
    - 1 IBT2 controller board
    - 1 Arduino Uno R3
    - Lots of jumpers to connect your arduino board to everything else
    - A couple of 10k potentiometers (i burnt some hehe)
    - A 12V 25A Power supply, or as we call it here "fonte chaveada", i found 25A to be cheaper than 20A and its good to have a supply margin on those, you never know
    - Some scrap metal so you can make a housing for your potentiometer

    Its kinda thrown around, but heres a view of everyuthing, it was setted on a wallmount but i took it off cause we were moooooooovingg


    By the way, Dmax on youtube helped me a lot, that guy is awesome

    on the structural side of the build (where i am much more comfortable at) i made a seat!!!!

    DIY Carbon fiber structure and then cushioned, heres a pic, it weights 560grams


    Chassi is almost done as well, i am finishing painting it, will be posting soon!

    As far as i went, i spent around R$1100,00. something around 250$
