Five years ago I built a sim from scratch using a 3DOF - 100mm SCN5 Motion Starter Kit and Actuator Mounting & Dampening Kits. I arrived at the locations for the actuators mostly by examining the photos of ready-made models and trial and error. After using it for a couple of years, I had to sell it and unfortunately I did not keep the records of my build.
Now I’m ready to build another one. Rather than go through the trial and error process again, can anyone provide some dimensions?
1. Width between actuators
2. Distance from U-joint to a line between the actuators
3. Angle of the actuators to the seat attachment with the actuator at half extension OR the height of the actuator seat attachment point vertically from the plane of the lower attachment point.
I would like to open up some discussion with other scratch-builders, see any helpful pictures of sims that have been scratch-built and read experiences in building.
