    Hi all newcomers,

    I invite you to present your great ideas, concepts and designs of motion simulation systems in general or parts of motion systems especially. I am the jury, any recourse to courts of law is excluded because the coins are given by myself. :thumbs

    • The most innovative system wins a big amount of 2000 coins.
    • The most innovative part of a motion system wins 1000 coins.

    What you have to do:
    Share your ideas! Preferably you draw a picture /and/or upload any pictures here.

    Good Luck! :)

    PS: the competition never ends (as long as I have any coins...)

    05/16.2015 @willaupuis has won 2000 coins by presenting his G-Seat

    For the moment there are two more concepts nominated:
    Please share your concepts, the more interesting we have the better for the next gen simbuilder ;)

    Here an example of what you can imagine it could work (or not) :p
    The background: surge and heave of a 2DOF can - under certain circumstances - block each other. The heave concept transforms a 2DOF seat mover into a 3DOF Platform. Anyway the picture is a concept only ands show you an example how your ideas could be shared to the community.
    Any comments are welcome!

    Why not just hand out your spare coins anyway? I have handed over 5000 over the last few months

    I do not like pushing own threads anyway I would like to share my upcoming project - a 3DOF seat mover. You know usually a 3DOF is not a seat mover but a motion platform. Anyway I was thinking how to fiddle out a better heave instead of the "moving heave" of a 2DOF seat mover. Already I got a "better" heave due to the position of the joint, which is more in the front of the seat mounted than in the center of the weight (I hope my explanation makes sense to everybody ...)
    At least the third axle should to be implemented into my 2DOF without tinkering too much.
    IMO i got the solution:
    3DOF seatmover.jpeg
    The third motor needs to be very strong. IMO my 750W winches (+ two MMs as a dual half bridge) should do the job. Nevertheless the third motor is only to lift the seat if the car is lifting, the fine vibrations coming from the surface of the track will be reproduced by the motors 1 and 2.

    PS: heave will be realized by all three motors. Only I am adding this information to avoid any confusion with.

    What a neat and creative idea pit. I love it:) Feel free to push your own thread much ofdten as you like to. I am sure there is no one with any objection.

    @Pit, have you thought about having the pedals/steering/shifter platform move? Possibly mirroring just the heave axis motor.

    bonjour je travaille sur deux modèle de Gseat
    Hello I am working on two model Gseat

    design by sketchup, translate by google

    voici le premier modèle:
    here is the first model:

    [​IMG]

    deux moteurs smolka 24v
    un pour pousser et tirer l'assise et les plaque dans le dos (bielle vert) , simulation poussée dans le dos pour l'accélération avec l'assise qui avance et recule le corps (accélération / freinage)
    un pour pousser les épaules (bielle rouge) simulation des poussées latérale gauche et droite

    two 24v engines smolka
    one for pushing and pulling the seat and the back plate (green rod), pushed in the back for simulation acceleration, the seat moves back and forth the body (acceleration / braking)
    one to push the shoulders (red link) simulation of the left and right lateral thrusts

    [​IMG]

    vue avant des plaques pour le dos
    Front view of the plates for the back

    [​IMG]

    zoom sur les bielles vert et le mécanisme pour la poussée dans le dos.
    une grande bielle tire ou pousse sur l'assise, sur les cotés deux petite bielle vert tire ou pousse les plaque dans le dos grâce a des roulettes de rollerskate

    Zoom on green rods and the mechanism for the push in the back.
    a large rod pulls or pushes on the seat, on both sides small green rod pulls or pushes the plate in the back thanks to casters rollerskate

    [​IMG]

    zoom sur le mécanisme de la poussée des épaules

    @willaupuis already your concept of your 3DOF is pretty much brilliant, now you chime in with this very interesting concept of a G-seat (I hope this is yours, isn't it?), so there is no doubt you have some big genius spirit in yourself, you will win as the very first in the history of xsimulator.net 2000 coins. Congratulation mate!

    merci pour les encouragements et les coins,
    oui je vais bientôt commencer a construire le Gseat.
    je mettrais ici des photos et explications dans un nouveau post.
    thank you for the encouragement and coins,
    yes I will soon start building the Gseat.
    I would put here pictures and explanations in a new post.

    Hi @Pit ... I wanted to see your bouncing chair video first just to make sure we don't have a conflict of interest :grin ...

    Maybe we can use just 2 motors with a double crank pedals for each motor like this ...
    images.jpg

    So as below figure for left side motor :
    - FIRST we will have a good balance on bothe motors ...
    - SECOND we will have overall 4 controlling point to the seat that can separately simulate a 3 master forces [Heave -Roll - small Pitch angle ] ...

    the project is well advanced I give you news in few times :)

    the H translates the movements to shoulders

    Indeed I am a crank builder, you will find three cranks and two bottom brackets in my rig, but this is no reason not to support new crank concepts by other members ;)
    Second IMHO there is a fallacy with your concept - the red marked line varies in size, isn't it?

    Hi @francois38200 welcome here at xsimulator.net. Your concept is at working stage yet but very interesting already. Your project will be on the nominee list. I am waiting for your great progress!

    Yeb :thumbs it varies in length as the light green crank has a circular rotation path ... and that end side has an open sliding slot for a bearing to move along it [ there is a tiny black line indicating that ].

    Now see that black line...obviously the speed of the heave will differ in comparison with front lifting and back lifting speed I have to confirm your design is really interesting, absolutely new and worth a try. In my view this concept should earn a chance and is nominated.
