    12/03/2016: Hello to all guys, I present my current cockpit, had initially idea to build me a 4dof, 3dof heave + traction loss, then I decided to do things step by step, and to start with a simple 2dof, begin by showing you My cockpit as it is:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Case created entirely by me, with only sections and aluminum panels

    [​IMG]

    Pc Spec:
    CPU: Intel i5 4690k
    VGA: 2x Sapphire 390 r9
    RAM: HyperX Fury 2x8gb
    HDD: WD 1TB + SSD 240GB
    ALI: Thermaltake 730W
    MB: MSI Z97 Gaming 5

    [​IMG]

    OSW small mige 5000ppr with IONI Pro HC at 800W, totally build myself

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Another thing that I have tried has been printing in 3D, and I just realized this button plate and magnetic paddle shift, really a great feeling.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sistem of bass shaker composed of 4 Reckhorn bs-200 powered by a e400 amp, 2 under pedals and 2 under seat, and another 2 basspump III with a konig 2400 under steering wheel and seat.

    [​IMG]

    I added the rubber to isolate each element that has transducers (pedals, seat, steering wheel) to increase even more the feelings that come to the driver, as I isolated the station off the ground, creating many levels:
    Silent Block
    Block in MDF
    Vibration mat

    [​IMG]

    The vibrations on the ground so they decreased by 80%, a remarkable achievement, and I can unleash my thomann E-400 and the konig 2400 without disturbing neighbors. ;)

    "Hydraulic" pedals a grind that has stretched for more than two months, it will not be beautiful it easy to adjust but I reached a top result with virtually feeling range of brake and clutch worthy of the most expensive in business.

    [​IMG]

    P260 potentiometers with brackets for the model servant Alu and shielded cable to prevent any disturbance

    [​IMG]

    always made in 3d support.

    [​IMG]

    All pedals are equipped with air shocks, and the brake has a Mavin load cell

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ARC Carbon sequential shifter, Fanatec CSS 1.5 and DIY handbrake from g27 pedal with gteye spring.

    Now I ordered all the pieces to build me a 2 dof classic for the seat only, the motors 24v are the first to have arrived. See you soon. ;)

    Magnifique travail !
    frein a une cellule de charge Mavin : peut-on savoir quel modèle et quel force ? Merci.

    Wonderful work, super OSW wheel !
    "the brake has a Mavin load cell": can we know what model and what strength? Thank you.

    Very nice rig and project ! I really appreciate the quality of your design.
    Where did you buy these motors ?

    I am attaching directly to the link from where I bought them:

    https://it.aliexpress.com/item/24-V...IphJHs&detailNewVersion=&categoryId=100007153

    it also sells the site Simukit:

    https://simukit.com/moteurs/9-moteur-120w.html

    but his are both right, from China it took them about 10 days unfortunately I paid customs duties, and so I came a little more as the price, if you no have problems of space and you can use both right motors, buy them on Simukit. :)

    Hi there!
    Looks interesting. And great work with those pedals!

    Which controllers/drivers are you going to use for the motors?
    I'm also in the planning of my 2dof project and thinking about 12V vs. 24V.

    regards

    It is true that having a right engine and a left is practical

    Hi, thank you, i'll use this motor driver

    http://www.ebay.it/itm/Double-BTS79...id=100033&rk=2&rkt=8&mehot=pp&sd=111140003697

    with appropriate modifications for cooling as heat sinks, fans, and thermal paste.

    What a beautiful cockpit!:thumbs
    Did you design/build the pedals all by yourself?

    Hi, nice build so far!
    Where did you get the aluminum panels? Here (Sassari) I find them hard to find

    Hi, thank you, yes, the design is my own, but I was inspired by some projects around the web as:

    https://chippedwood.wordpress.com/2015/09/03/diy-hydraulic-load-cell-sim-racing-pedals/

    https://forum.virtualracing.org/showthread.php/90854-Mein-DIY-Cockpit?highlight=martin+ascher

    Ciao Blame73, tutto l'alluminio lo compro sempre da motedis.com, provengono dalla Germania ma le spedizioni costano comunque 13€, inoltre hanno davvero di tutto, dai profilati alle lastre in alluminio, viti, condili, molle, cuscinetti e quant'altro basta solo cercare, tutto ciò che vedi della struttura della mia postazione proviene da quel sito. :thumbs

    Hello Blame73, all aluminum I buy always motedis.com, come from Germany but shipments still cost € 13 also have really everything from profiles to aluminum plates, screws, condyles, springs, bearings and other, all you see of my cockpit structure comes from that site. :thumbs

    I think around 450/500 euros, bearings, load cell and air shocks are the most expensive parts. :S
