    Hello guys,

    I know my question is pretty stupid but i'm a bit lost with SimTools.
    I have a project to make my own DOF platform, using linear servo-actuator, controlled by a joystick looking like this :

    So this is not about a video game or something, it's only about me, controlling the platform with a joystick. I also would like to program some movements, as a routine.

    So my question is : do you know if is it possible to control linear servo-actuator with simtools and how ? I searched for a pretty long time but I didn't find something like this.

    Thank you per advance and sorry if someone already create a thread about that :)
