    salut donc voici les plans de base de mon projet
    http://imageshack.us/g/1/10296784/

    les inclinaisons sont de l'ordre de +ou - 10° sur les deux axes



    la base en bleu et violet, ne sont pas définitifs la partie mobile oui elle sera entièrement en aluminium et repliable sur elle même
    j'ai déja le cardan pour l'articulation les moteurs ne vont pas tarder
    il me restera la partie éléctrique et informatique ...

    So here hello plans based on my project
    the inclinations are on the order of + or - 10 ° to the two axes
    Based in blue and purple, are not the final moving part so it will be all-aluminum folding on itself
    I already have the gimbal joint engines will soon
    it remains for me the electric part and computer ...

    Welcome !

    If you intend to use arduino, you will find information here
    from A to Z : built a 2DOF arduino 12V wiper motors post44019.html#p44019

    You should be careful to weight and lack of rigidity with a foldable design ;-)

    Bienvenue !

    Si tu veux utiliser un Arduino, tu trouveras des informations ici.
    from A to Z : built a 2DOF arduino 12V wiper motors post44019.html#p44019

    Fais attention au poids et à un manque de rigidité dans le cas d'un simulateur pliable.

    Amicalement,
    Mathieu

    Bonjour, mate.
    Je recommande 12v Dc gros réducteurs ou une résistance équivalente et les conduire à le Jrks. Beaucoup moins maux de tête dans la mise en place et de le faire tous à courir.

    Jrks sont environ 99US $ et économisez beaucoup de maux de tête.
    Câbler un pot pour eux plus la puissance et le moteur, crochet dans un port usb et en définissant les paramètres dans le logiciel de config Pololu et la race ou la mouche.

    Ou si vous souhaitez faire étape à 24v, Dimension Engineering a un nouveau contrôleur qui conduira un Sabertooth, qui semblent être populaire en France et deux moteurs à hautes ampères, avec fin de course de sécurité. Doc très en détail sur leur site expliquant le programme d'installation.

    Bienvenue dans l'univers des Sims DIY.

    English Translation

    Hello, mate.
    I would recommend 12v Dc Big Worm Gear units or equivalent strength and drive them with the Jrks. A lot less headaches in setting up and getting it all to run.

    Jrks are about $99US and save a lot of headaches.
    Wire a pot to them plus the power and motor, Hook in a usb and setting the settings in the Pololu config software, and race or fly.

    Or in turn if you wish to step to 24v, Dimension Engineering has a new controller that will drive a Sabertooth, that seem to be popular in France, and drive two motors at high amps, with limit switches for safety. Very detail doc on their site explaining the setup.

    Welcome to the world of DIY Sims.

    ici les moteurs modifiés et montés sur leurs supports

    je n'ai pas encore déterminé ou je vais mettre les potentiomètre mais ils sont branchés


    Here modified engines and mounted on their supports

    I have not yet decided where I'll put the pot but they are connected

    Finally, the engine mounts with angle

    Salut Nico,

    welcome here:cheers I am happy to see your project at XSimulator, but are you able to translate at least the most important phrases into english (google translate?).
    Cause of the international aspect we are mainly talking english. otherwise the mosts user are not able to understand the project description.
    The motion simulator user are only a very small group in comparison to the wordwide population so lets talk the same language and become friends:)

    Bienvenue ici: Vive je suis heureux de voir votre projet à XSimulator, mais êtes-vous en mesure de traduire au moins les phrases les plus importants en anglais (google translate?).
    Cause de l'aspect international, nous parlons principalement en anglais. sinon, l'utilisateur de mosts ne sont pas en mesure de comprendre la description du projet.
    L'utilisateur du simulateur de mouvement ne sont que très petit groupe par rapport à la population wordwide laisse ainsi parler le même langage et devenir amis :)

    Cheers, René

    Salut Nico,

    thank your very much. I really like your project. Wished i also had access to a CNC mill.

    Hi !
    l'usinage des pièces, aide beaucoup pour l'assemblage des differents éléments

    là, je suis dans attente d'une pièce en alu que j'ai du faire souder par un professionel
    celle ci sert a fixer le volant , c'est cette dèrnière qui permet le replis du volant et du pedalier
    du coups l'encombrement du simulateur et réduit

    je me suis déja lancé dans la réalisation de quelques projets
    voiture miniature 1/5 eme
    fraiseuse cnc faite maison
    mais le simulateur ça fait longtemps que j'en ai envie !


    machining parts, helps a lot to assemble the different elements

    , I'm waiting in a piece of aluminum that I had to weld a professional
    that it serves to fix the wheel, it is the latter that allows the folds of the steering wheel and crankset
    shots of the simulator and reduces congestion

    I am already launched in the realization of some projects
    miniature car 1/5 th
    homemade cnc milling machine
    the simulator but it's been that I want!

    salut et merci pour les commentaires ça fait plaisir !
    Oui Fer , je dessine mes plans avec AUTOCAD puis je réalise les élements en fraisage cnc et tournage classique
    Mais c'est moi qui fait tout :grin

    Il n'y aura qu'une pièce que je fait faire a un soudeur " il ne fait que souder " la découpe c'est moi qui la fait

    J'ai déja cette pièce en acier sur mon playseat, mais l'acier est plus lourd que l'aluminium, donc je la fait faire en aluminium pour le gain de poid ;)


    hello and thank you for the feedback it's nice!
    Yes Fer, I draw my plans with AutoCAD then I realized the items in cnc milling and turning classic

    but it's me who does everything:grin

    there will be a piece that I actually do have a welder "it only weld" cutting it is I who makes


    I already have this piece of steel on my playseat, but steel is heavier than aluminum, so I did make aluminum for weight gain ;)

    Keep us all informed mate, One of the nicest looking projects in ages.
    Yes I use AutoCAD too before actually building anything, save heaps of time to be able to draw it all in 1:1.
    You soon see any errors before wasting money in fabrication.

    bonjour a tous désolé pour l'absence ... je travaillais ! et puis manque de temps du a des problèmes personnels
    Mais, mon projet a bien avancé
    le socle en acier est pratiquement fini il ne reste plus que les pied d'appuis et souder le tout !

    la partie mobile en aluminium, quand à elle j'en vois la fin !
    après quelques modifications effectuées en cours de réalisation en effet je comptais faire souder quelques éléments en alu mais j'avais peur du rendu esthétique de l'ensemble donc, voici quelques photos


    Hello everyone sorry for the lack ... I worked! and then lack of time has personal problems
    But my project is well advanced
    the steel base is almost finished there remains only the support foot and weld all!

    mobile aluminum part, for its part, I see the end!
    after some changes underway in effect I intended to do some welding aluminum elements but I was afraid of the whole esthetic So here are some pictures
