    Hi, i'm new here !
    I'm from Brazil and i will start my project 2DOF simulator.
    Please, sorry but my english is very poor !


    I started researching this week with doing DIY so it's only in the beginning

    Initials:
    PC i will use a based Intel 1151 chipset @ I-7 7700 8Gb DRR4
    Video Geforce GT740

    Arduino Uno
    Moto Monster Shield >>Using IBT-2
    2 cermet linear pot 10k >> Not found using carbon simple pot
    2 24V motor Bosch
    PSU 24Vdc
    Structure: I will use aluminum profile frame


    (Attached photo, of the items I have)

    I have news !

    My Used Playseat arrives yesteraday.

    I will make the base in structural aluminum where the Playseat will be on it. I will do the project and post soon!

    Vou postar em português mesmo. O pessoal de fora (gringos) tem bastante informação, aqui no Brasil é difícil ver algo sobre isso. Melhor postar na língua natal mesmo, para tentar ajudar.
    Outra: meu inglês é péssimo, rsrs.
    Minhas peças estão comigo, faltando alguns itens que terei que comprar e /ou fabricar.

    Começando a montagem.
    Usando perfil estrutural de alumínio reforçado de 40 x 40
    Motores Bosch 24VDC com caixa de redução MR4
    Cockpit playseat
    Volante Thrustmaster TX Itália com AddOn F1
    Inicialmente iria usar a Motomonster mas como comprei motores de 24V, já de um rapaz que fez um simulador e iria trocar por esses motores, mas desistiu, portanto preferi a IBT-2 que suporta mais de 24VDC.

    Algumas foros:

    I updated my PC 13/08/18)
    MB: Gigabyte AORUS Z370
    uP: Intel I5 8400
    Memory: 16Gb (2x8Gb) DDR4 Corsair
    SSD 120Gb (will be updated as possible))
    Graphic Card: Nvidia GT940 (will be updated as possible)
    Power: Thermaltake 600W

    I will measure the motor shaft on one side so that both are the same on the platform. I will make the coupling for the potentiometers.
    After, i'll post the photos.

    I'm back and I fixed the shaft of one of the motors, so that both are symmetrical in the platform:

    removing the axis:

    stayed like this:

    before it was like this:

    an idea of how it will look:

    Now I'll finish installing the fonts, the box with the arduino and the IBT-2, set to start configuring the software.

    Hi, i have news !
    I finished 95% of simulator.
    I tested in SCM3 Utils and the system is fine ! Communications working and axis is respondig by my command !

    I will install a 2nd PSU 24VDC, because i think the system works without a overload.
    Some pictures:

    Updating...


    I re-installed the simtools and tested the communication and all right. But LFS does not send data to simtools.
    I researched and uninstalled the path and reinstalled again without success. I can test the axes in simtools like in video:


    (


    I do not know if this is where I put my doubts ...
    But I can not get LFS to communicate with the simtools. What am I doing wrong?

    Install LFS and run it once at least. Only then patch it. Check in the file C:\Games\LFS\cfg.txt (or wherever you have installed LFS), if there are the entries
    Code:
    OutSim Mode 2
    OutSim Delay 1
    OutSim IP 127.0.0.1
    OutSim Port 4123
    OutSim ID 1
    OutGauge Mode 2
    OutGauge Delay 10
    OutGauge IP 127.0.0.1
    OutGauge Port 4124

    I uninstalled all sofwares, simtools, xsim, lfs.
    I downloaded the ccleaner and did a registry cleanup.
    I've reinstalled Simtools and LFS I played LFS I set the Game Maneger again.

    Now, its working !

    Now i will install the cockpit on simulator !

    I have news !
    I mounted the Playseat cockpit on top of 2dof!
    I have some adjustments to make and I will post here the problems and the corrections! By the way is that.

    PS.: I am having some problems with the engines, maybe they are overheating, losing performance, I will continue to search more.

    I just received my activation key from Simtools DIY version!

    Now it is hard work to make the system more reliable and robust, there are some problems still, but I will post as soon as I solve them.

    The most important thing is to spread the word that we can build yes!

    Today was a day of correcting some problems:
    The structure was taller than i wish.

    Disassembled and decreased by 8cm.
