    I made a RGB LEDS as simhub software with low cost taking advantage of a 3 1/4 "drive cover.
    I'll use it in my 2dof simulator I'm making.
    Materials:
    Arduino Uno
    2 RGB Leds card
    50cm microphone wire
    Old computer plate of 3 1/2" drive

    Wiring:

    Using the front cover of a 3 1/2" drive from an old enclosure:

    Two RGB LEDS cards will be installed behind the cover:

    Using a crepe tape we mark the points where the holes will be made:

    Finish using a sandpaper and a small drill to make sure the two plates fit snugly:

    Ready now the finish:

    So easy and very, very low cost!

    Hello people
    Sorry, dumb question.
    do you use the SIMHUB software? or as SIMHUB sorry I did not understand, once again sorry
    here in Brazil everyone needs a low cost, taxes to import are 60%.
    like us $ 100 = 160 ....
    tks

    Oi amigo tudo bem?
    Sim uso o software SIMHUB que é gratuito.
    As placas arduino UNO e a RGB led comprei no MercadoLivre e sairam bem barato !


    Hello Friend, how are you?
    Yes I use SIMHUB software that is free.
    The arduino UNO and RGB led cards bought on eBay and worked out cheap!

    I thought we could not show involving other Software like Simhub.
    Mine is ready too (TM1638)
    I followed the "amstudio" tutorial on youtube. (I've already mentioned it here in the community as well.
    I saw you are in Brazil. COOL.
    I'll post a working video
    the dashboards work very well on the android too, for those who can not spend with a Nextion display
    I'm still trying to work with XSIM

    I am not sure why you would think that, members here discuss all aspects of motion sims and related peripherals, even commercial ones in their own thread sections.

    Hello noorbest I thought the community only dealt with XSIM. I read it quite and did not realize it.
    Sorry, I do not do it again. (rsrsssrs)
    for me the community always had a lot of inventiveness, genius, creativity and was friendly.
    a big hug to everyone
    in my project I spent here in Brazil
    Arduino nano R$ 21
    TM1638 display R$ 18 + R$ 12 shipping and i'll not use Nextion. very spensive in BR. (brbbrrrrr)
