    That is brilliant @meo_udon, thanks for sharing that :thumbs

    A 3D printer would be a real asset when building a motion simulator.

    Can you give us some more details on your build, it looks fascinating.

    Excellent work, trying to understand how it works if there is an error and the motor over-runs - some type of slipping clutch?
    Looks like your building a big AC rig - nice.

    Excellent idea

    Also a shearpin of some soft material (matchstick) will work
