    thanks for the link and the information, i didnt know. I completely agree, the vibrators do the job so much better! It is good if in certain cofiguration the jacks can vibrate, but I'm sure the result is much better with 2 separate systems. a cylinder / motor for large displacement and a powerful vibrator for small effect.

    @riton - I didn’t mean to imply shakers were “better” than motion actuators that can themselves reproduce vibrations and such. I was really just stating what gets obvious once you build a platform - There’s a range of frequencies and amplitudes that your sim motors can reproduce, but outside that range you may have to resort to other measures. Cheers!

    Thanos, Any chance you will, in the future, make your D Drive board easier to set up? I know its is no much to do :
    but I am wondering if it still improvable. Many thanks
