    This is the configuration of simtools and the assignment of axes of nolimits2,
    the code of the arduino is the SMC3 that is explained in this link: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...3dof-motor-driver-and-windows-utilities.4957/

    Hi,

    Got interested in your project as you are using Citroen Jumpy wiper motors - the same as I have selected and now testing in a test bench setup. What I am interested in as a wiper motor always is a bit limiting,

    - what is your wiper arm length?
    - what is your wiper motor working angle?
    - are the motors heating up?
    - what are their maximum current draw in use?
    - how have they worked so far?

    Thank you for taking time to answer my questions!

    Hi, I will try to answer your questions, sorry for my English, I will use Google translator

    - what is your wiper arm length?

    - what is your wiper motor working angle?
    I have welded two screws so as not to break the potentiometers

    - are the motors heating up?
    I played dirt rally for 90 minutes and the engines were hot, but without any problem, it is also important ground isolation https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/wiper-motor-mandatory-ground-isolation.25/

    - what are their maximum current draw in use?
    the maximum current consumption in use, I do not know, the power supply is 33 amps, and it makes the motors working well

    - how have they worked so far?
    The work of the motors and the simulator in general, is being very good, it is a simple model, easy to maintenance

    great job i am impressed, is it possible to have the plan ? did you had some difficulties with the monstor shield and sim tools ? what is the power in W of the wiper motor ?

    thank you, but how did you determine the position of the motors and the heigh to the seat ? (your english is good ;-)

    Hoi my name is martin,
    I made a construction like yours.

    My problem is the length of my levers ... not more than 3.5 cm. My weight is 110 kg.
    May I humbly ask you about your weight in kg?
    I your thread and the length of the lever. Would you give me any advice please? Now I know that my design is too strict for a platform engine. Do you think I could live with your measurements? Thank you very much for any kind of response!
    Greetings from Bavaria,
    ART FLY!
    Thank you so much !!!

    Hi Martin, my weight is 80 kg, but my simulator has worked with 110 kg from my friend

    My levers are also 3.5 cm, the important thing so that I can move you is to put the simulator in balance, so that the levers do not support the weight

    My English is very bad, the idea that I want you to understand is this

    Greetings and cheers with your simulator, you are almost finished Screenshot_20200801-162615~2.png

    Hola amigo Satbranigan :cheers

    I hope you and your family are alright !!!

    This weekend I will start the build of the 3rd dof. As your and my Rig are pretty equal - just in other material I watched already your 3dof YT videos. That is the way I like to do it.

    If you have time please tell me some hints that you overlooked building the t-loss at your rig. Maybe some tips you have I would not think about concerning lever length, angles or else ?

    I appreciate a lot if you have some minutes to give back to me.

    On one photo you see how my MoSiRig looks right now, The other ist the lever I made ... soooo long that I have lot of cutting space :D

    *I did the very first time welding in my life :rolleyes: I looks ugly but it is well tight !!!

    Yours

    Hello art fly, I am sending you some photos of the 3rd dof in case they help you IMG_20201025_123453.jpg IMG_20201025_123410.jpg IMG_20201025_123334.jpg IMG_20201025_123153.jpg IMG_20201025_123122.jpg IMG_20201025_123102.jpg IMG_20201025_123251.jpg IMG_20201025_123302.jpg
