    I'm looking into purchasing this kit - can I ask you where you moved the hinge to make it better? Is it just about moving it to the center point of your rig I guess?

    Hi @Pit, what are the minimum watts/N.m recommendations for each motor, to use with this type of sim, using the same electronic components? thank you.

    Friend, can share your Arduino code? I'm doing a 2 dof platform, but I can't write!

    Wow this looks professionally built. Would you mind posting a picture of the sim tools settings(interface & Axis assignments)
    And where in south Africa I can get the controller you used

    Genuine MonsterMotoShield are no longer produced, there are cheap clones still sold but they can often be faulty: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/monster-moto-testing-before-use.158/

    You can find the SMC3 code and its setup instructions here: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...3dof-motor-driver-and-windows-utilities.4957/

    This rig is actually the DOFreality prototype: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...-3dof-6dof-motion-simulator-dof-reality.8570/
