    I've been working on a 3D-printed mounting system for the DOF Reality rig.

    The idea is that I wanted to easily reposition the HOTAS controllers when I have guest riders, and swap out gear quickly (i.e. a single quick release clamp to switch rudder pedals with racing pedals.

    I'm using a grid-like rail system to reposition the controllers and lock it down with a quick-release clamp. I might come up with a 3D-printed clamping system, but I'm just working on the proof of concept for now and keeping things simple.

    I wanted to share the progress of this project and have the files be available from the get-go. I placed the files on GitHub at https://github.com/glenmoyes/dof-reality-mounts. The files are made in FreeCAD so anyone can edit them. STL files are also available.

    Currently I'm supporting the gear that I own (CH Products for HOTAS, Fanatec Handbrake, Thrustmaster pedals), but I'll accept pull requests for additional gear!
