    Hi merchan-e,
    Thanks! I was worried that maybe the motors would be slipping under normal (working) load, but I think this will not be a problem.
    Unfortunately I have stopped work on Oculus VR simulator since they have been bought be Facebook :eek:.
    I'm waiting to see what twill come out of it before doing any more work.

    Have you done any more work on your simulator?
    Thanks, Tino.

    I'm not sure how cable driven Stewart platform would cope with swinging movements.

    This reminds me of when the very high depth of field video lenses were developed, all the maths/experts said it could not be done, but then someone who did not know any better went ahead and just built one...

    Hello Merchan-E.

    Very impressed with the work you did. I am trying to build one and after searching for ideas I found that yours looks the most impressive and yet "do-able" for my level. Any idea on the total cost of your project so far? Would like to estimate the budget for myself (wife is going to be mad!).

    Thanks ;)

    Remember that mine is only a prototype, just wanted to prove it was possible.
    The total cost of my project would be about 300 euros.

    Tino I like your project.:cheers

    Thanks merchan-e, you have shown us the way :)
    300 Euros for 6dof stewart platform is epic! :cheers
    That is actually cheaper than some charge for mini 6dof stewart platform :D !
    https://www.marginallyclever.com/shop/stewart-platforms/rotary-stewart-platform-v2

    Speaking of mini stewart platforms, do you, or anyone else know of any good guides how to build one of them (and roughly how much they cost to make?)
    I think they would also make a great 6dof force feedback joystick!

    @Tino with a mini stewart platform, what do you mean? I can suggest you:
    www.hobbyking.com they have servos from 3 $. buy 6 of them and some tie rods (50-100mm, about 4.70$)
    1Ard, a small power supply such a 6v batt, and some wood.

    It's possible to build a 6DOF small platform for just 60¿? 80¿? $$$. hope I helped.
