    You use SMC3 for motor pid calibration, this setup varies according to the motors, drivers and power supply you use. I will place mine with these motors and 24V power supply.

    Regarding the assignments of the axes, here too the values vary according to what one wants to receive as a response to the reaction of the motors according to the feeling one wants to have. For now I am using this configuration on RBR that I use for more time with which I am very comfortable.

    thank you for sharing! I'll try your settings, hope it can give me a clearer image on how this simtools works.
    good luck with your new 6dof project!

    Thank you. Within the limits of my knowledge I am available.

    PS.
    I do not see your origin in your contact, I would like to know what nationality my interlocutors are.
    Thank you.

    Thanks! May I also ask where you got them from and how much you paid?

    I found these ones. Do you think they are sufficient (strong/fast enough) for a similar build?

    I simply don't know, where to put this kind of information. There is no option in the user control panel... (at least I don't find it).

    I can't tell you anything about those motors, I can tell you that the ones I'm using do their job, they cost little and, what I think is very important, they have brass gears and not plastic. You can find them here -> link sito

    For the origin you have to click on your contact at the top right and choose "Personal Details", you will find them under "Location".

    Of course, they are not engines like you see them on many projects but, in my opinion, better than common wiper motors. Then it always depends on what you want to achieve, I am satisfied with a simple structure and considerably low costs, you see

    Those are indeed nice and not expensive. Are you using the same motors for your new 6 DoF build?

    Yes, they are the same.
