    Hi Fabio, Thanks for your quick response. I'm so relieved, I thought that my motors cant meet the specifications for my sim. Looking forward to starting my project and as soon as the motors arrive. By the way, Sabertooth 2x32A is way too much expensive than motors. Can you recommend a cheaper one?

    I chose the Sabertooth + arduino configuration because I saw other projects that worked well and also because I could better understand their settings.
    Not having any knowledge I relied on the scheme in my posts and therefore I was also obliged to use these components.
    From what I understand the choice Sabertooth is almost obligatory because it is the only one that supports the amps of powerful engines.
    I can't recommend anything else.

    Quality hardware costs, like Sabertooth, tends too work out in the long run in terms of reliability and longevity.

    But if you want a cheaper option try 43A IBT-2 in Mode 2 using SMC3 code: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...3dof-motor-driver-and-windows-utilities.4957/

    Be aware that cheap MM clones often have issues: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/reputable-monster-moto-suppliers-testing-before-use.158/

    Thanks, Sir @Milani Fabio, Ill go with the sabertooth. By the way, I've seen your video with the button right on your chair. Is that for the Emergency stop? if that so, where to attach/wire that.

    Hi Fabio, do you have actual size measurements of your gears nor drawing details with the size?

    Hello guys,
    I came back to present you my new project, or rather, update my sim 3 DOF.
    I would like to add a movement, the loss of traction.
    But I wanted it independent of other movements, a DOF engine dedicated only to traction loss.
    Here is my solution starting from my original project and keeping most of the old pieces.
    I added the lower base.
    A new star-shaped box on the moving base (the green one) to house the front for the fulcrum.
    The upper wheels and above all two trolleys under the plates, which serve to anchor the upper part to the lower base when the lateral movements are fast (chicane).
    The fourth engine in a position inside the structure, I wanted to keep the old measures for the little space in the room ..... only 6 cm more in width.
    At the moment it is only on sketchup., I hope soon it becomes a reality.
    I am attaching the video of the project in sketchup (in recent months I have learned to use the softwere a little bit .... beautiful !!!!)
    See you soon

    señor lo felicito ... me encanta con la prolijidad que lo iso se nota mucho todo lo que sabe.

    Sir, I congratulate you ... I love it with the neatness that iso shows you very much everything you know.

    Hi
    I use the Wanegain code.
    the Wanegain arduino code was sent to me directly by Wanegain.
    You ask him with a PM, he is a kind person, he will have no problem sending it to you.
    If you have to make sims like mine I suggest you join this forum, there are so many projects and tutorials like mine.

    Hi Anatachaikiet,
    I didn't make the gears out of them, they designed them a 3D print shop, I gave them all the specifications and they designed it.
    I only have the files in stl format, but I can't load it in the post because it tells me that the stl format is not an allowed extension.
    I'm sorry.
