    Hey all. I am about to start the building process for my first ever 6DoF. I am new, I have a great understanding of the mechanics of it as I am a mechanic. I am starting off with the Stewart Platform to get my base size/platform : base size-height/actuator length.

    I will be building the whole set up including actuators.

    NOW..... haha here is my mortal enemy..... wiring. *as I'm sure for most**

    Soooooo........ I'm clueless where to even start. This is what I'm looking to get to start

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32973113245.html - AC Servo Motor and driver

    -1610 ball and screw for the actuator

    -3D print actuator parts

    -Metal cabinet for the drivers

    -Logitech G923 steering wheel and pedals

    - Monitor / Monitors TBD

    -HP Desktop Computer Omen 880-010 Ryzen 5 1st Gen 1400 (3.20 GHz) 8 GB DDR4 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Windows 10

    and software

    I am primarily using this for IRACING

    Thank you all in advance for taking the time to read and or respond

    RIGHT ON!!!!! This is def a new venture for me, however I will share as much information as possible. Once I have the tangible items for the system I will post photos. \

    If i have the servo motor and driver..... what else do I need to hook them to the computer?
