    I live in Brasil and here we have very few things related to simulators, I'm planning doing a 3 dof and I can't find good motors to the simulators...
    Here Ard and MM are very expensive and we don't won a good salary...
    Maybe one day I get out here and go to a better place... But by this moment my dream is building a 3 DOF :D
    If you need 3d drawings, I work with solidworks, just call me and we can do some stuff easy and free :)

    Dear @Chosa4

    Do you have news ? Bought something or build a little more ?
    I'm still planning, no development yet...
    I was thinking about making my actuators, as I will do almost all, will be cheaper, because in Brasil is difficult to find that motors, and buy it because Brasil taxes will be very expensive...

    What about you?

    Nice project chosa4! I hope you are able to locate some cheap prices for worm drives, do make sure they have metallic internals. Very nice pictures. Look forward to seeing your progress.

    Use larger motor such as higher speed 70N.M 200RPM will seat fierce point did not ease even better experience
