    Roughly how much did it cost you to build each

    They look great

    Not very expensive, the laser cutting and machining are made at my job in falls, the only things I bought are the switches, the knob and the card leo bodnar, about 60 euros in all.

    hey mimi,

    i really like your build.
    especialy the creative way to build the u-joint for the seat.

    are the blue parts in the controlbox 3d-printed or metal?
    (motorarm)
    is it a crank style like simukit uses?
    can you please provide details on this.

    I´m looking for a solution here for my own build.

    thank you!
    again, great work! :)

    hello

    The parts in blue are all in metal (laser cutting).
    I designed the cranks myself, but they are inspired by those of simukit.
    I still have the plans if you want...

    hey mimi,

    yeah, that would be great! :)

    finding a right motorarm is harder as i thought it would be...

    That some slick looking work. Curious if you have the schematics for the DIY H shifter?

    hey, it‘s me again ;)

    i found your simulator in a video by randomly browsing youtube searching for 2dof seatmover.
    it‘s great! you should really link it in your startingpost

    i‘m impressed how smooth and direct the movement is.
    would you mind to share your simtools settings here?

    are you using the 120w or the 400w motors from simukit?

    thank you for building this.
    it‘s such an inspiration! :)

    hello

    I use the 120 w motors, they are sufficient for a seatmover, they don't heat.

    My settings (for Assetto Corsa) in Game Engine are : surge 45%(with 10% smoothing), sway 35%, heave 20%, roll 15%, pitch 15%
    in tunnig center: roll 15/-15, pitch 15/-15, heave 1/-1, sway 1/-1, surge 1/-1

    I have a potentiometer which adjusts the effects in game from 0 to 200%.

    hey!
    thanks for sharing your settings! :)

    are you using smc3 code for arduino?

    i‘m thinking about switching to your design...
