    My Motion Simulator:
    2DOF, 3DOF, DC motor, AC motor, SCN5, SCN6, SimAxe, Arduino, JRK, Joyrider, SimforceGT, Motion platform, 4DOF, 6DOF
    Hi All,

    I am working on building a DIY flight motion simulator (2dof) using the outputs from SimTools motion software.

    Is there anyone help me in making Simtools compatible with Arduino and pneumatic actuators??
    Is simtools compatible with pneumatic actuators?? if so, what other components and equipments do I need to provide?? (i.e what type of pneumatics, valve, etc ...)
    I even don't know how to code the Arduino!!! [​IMG] I am trying to build a DIY heavy duty flight motion simulator.
    Actually I need compatible Arduino codes to control pneumatic actuators and other required equipments such as valves, etc ... . (what valve and other equipments do I need?)

    By the way, there is a compatible code called SMC3 (https://github.com/SimulatorMotorController/SMC3), but I think It is compatible only with DC motors and electric linear actuators. Can I use it for pneumatic actuators???

    I will be grateful if you guys help me.
    Thanks in advance
    Mojtaba.
