    I dont know the cost @GoRacing , ask @vulbas for this one and ask @merchan-e about his.
    Start with a 2DOF seat mover I suggest and go from there.

    Thanks for the list Vulbas hardware can you tell me the cost of everything if you can? Even in PM was just to give me an idea about a project like your 6 engines on expenses that must be addressed. Surely I'll start with 2 motors

    Thanks again and congratulations for your project;)

    hi,
    I'm not gonna lie. I do not know. all inclusive can be between € 3,000 and € 5,000
    I would have to do some research to find prices.
    I'm sorry not to be more specific.

    I do know "my" 3DOF (about finished), very similar motors/gearheads/steel/VFD's - WITHOUT new pc, is coming in at 3000.00 US.

    Still cheaper than buying a commercial equivalent though.

    I know "me" has saved 5000.00 US over the CKAS and 6000.00 US over the MSE platforms.

    I paste under simulator, mat anti vibration rubber
    sometimes my garage can be a flooded between 7 and 9mm, so it will avoid that the steel bar is in the water
    sticking to the neoprene,. damn I love the smell of the glue

    I spent a second coat of black paint matt

    I started tinkering,
    even with a 30 ° angle of the ball joints are not abutments

    I finished 50% of the wiring
    So it remains to solder cables on potentiometer. and put lugs on the motor cables.

    this picture we see that the electronic box goes without problem under the simulator

    I have two bass bump that date my age HT, they were on my couch and it worked really not bad, it was even surprising. I would put in the wooden plate I'll put on the platform above. we'll see what happens.
