    One More Toy :)


    After running my 2dof seat mover for many happy years.
    I have decided to do something else as well, i have got frex 4x hyper axis 100 actuators and was hoping to find two more so i can go for a 6dof small platform type abit like the hexapod frex do.
    Or if striggle to find the extra two hyper axis i will prob go with a platform mover, with traction loss and poss swat mover or surge.
    Just not sure yet.

    Will.try to keep upto date on the build which ever way i go.
    But any experience of these styles and which works best would be info.
    I have been on many sims now over the years at shows but its been that long and so much changed i just cannot remember.
    I was just let down on a simxperience stage 5 rig so have gone the trusted diy route as thats where i will be happy i guess.
    So now its an open table to make something.
    I have currently
    4x hyper axis 100
    2x scn5 100.
    And poss have 2 scn5 150.

    Some fancy thing can be made i am sute.
    It will be of aliminum profile slot type
    Material for the main rig.
    Its just too nice and so many ways to upgrade alter so its a no brainer.
    I have a place 10min uo the road i can work with and get the stuff.

    I will start with the wiring and details for the hyper axis 100 and start to finish bench test.
    And go thru the issues to the working product on the bench.
    Mainly to help anyone else.
    Hope to be set out as simple as can be.

    Cheers all hope to post again soon with the next step.

    My Motion Simulator:
    2DOF, 3DOF, SCN5
    So managed to get lots of profile t slot today and start messing with the build plans.
    I am stuck which way to go.
    Base traction loss
    4 LEG motion platform
    Surge seat,wheel,pedals frame on a slide system.
    Its more knowing what works best for feel.

    Next example.
    Traction loss.
    Surge sliders into the TL frame.
    4leg motion platform.

    Another example.
    4leg motion platform.
    Traction loss,seat,wheel,pedals frame.
    Surge seat,wheel,pedals.

    I could also run seat.mover i guess instead of the surge slider.
    But was thinking the surge would feel more natural with everything else thats going on.

    I am still messing with ideas in my head.
    But also been messing with profile design.

    Nothing set in stone for the build this is just messing about.
    Base with a traction loss platform to take the 4 leg motion patform aswell.

    Weight would be my goal lighter way the better i guess if it don't imoact the feel.

    The lightest way is traction loss and surge rails in the base of the system and just the 4 leg platform for the legs so min weight.

    Hope anyone building rigs similar can help with end results for what feel is from trial and error.

    Cheers.
