    Question does the angle of your actuators work properly ? Im trying to build a 2DOF seat shaker like yours and I see all the different angles that are being used with SCN actuators . What are the limits when it comes to angling them. Thanks for the help.

    Here is a general take on angles: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/shoulder-mount-rod-angles.149/

    Really it is about design parameters and effective use of available speed and torque, you can use SimCalc to get a bit of an idea of the physics involved: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...e-linear-speed-and-forces-of-your-design.270/
