    Hi everyone.
    I show you my 2dof project. It's not completed yet. It's my intention to update the thread with each improvement.

    MECHANIC PART
    I choosed to use aluminum profile for the base structure.

    The profiles are connected via L bracket.

    The seat structure is build with 30x30 iron tubular.

    Then I use 2 modified stabilizer bar link to connect the seat to the wiper motors

    The boards. I opted to use one MM each motor.

    The PSUs used are the HP DPS600BP IMG_8012.jpg

    I connected the pots with the shaft through a flexible coupler

    Currently I'm continuing the building of the G27's structure. I'm using 40x40 tubular iron.
    The base will support the screen.

    I tested the system with LFS and all work good but the fine adjustments are not completed yet.

    I hope to finish the total assembly before the end of the month.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the attention and for the work that made in this forum.

    Bye!hug:
