    Forgive me, I have opened another thread with this same theme,
    I didn't know I should have it here as it started again.
    This is my 2dof construction project,
    initially I built it to install under an office seat

    but I had to convert it because the total height of the seat literally left my feet dangling.

    Basically it is a 2dof simulator with two wiper motors, an Arduino one R3, a MotoMonster board, two linear 10K potentiometers in plastic, a 16A power supply, a Cardan and some fairly mediocre levers but at the moment they work

    My first serious obstacle was connecting the drive levers to the motor shaft, as these are extremely short and I had to glue a pair of washers to each drive lever and also bend them so that they would not trip over the engine mounting bolts.

    The second great obstacle is linked to the first, since the lever could not bear the tremendous effort of the weight and stock, so I had to make it shorter, with it I achieved two things, first that the movements were smoother and also the lever system would hold better the weight of the seat.
    As seen in the holes of these levers.

    In this other image you can see the electrical connections of the 12V motors and the connections of the potentiometers, using male Faston connectors and also the two folding supports that I have installed so that the mechanical system rests when I do not use it.
