Picked up my shaft reducers for my position sensors. They came out great. I had them put 3 set screws around the circumference on the gearbox shaft and the sensor shaft side. Thanos mentioned it would be easier to adjust the center point if we are able to rotate the shaft reducer during setup. I started running the wire for the sensors, need to get some stuff at the store tomorrow to route the wire neatly back to my inverter box.
I'm pretty much done with my lower platform. I ran all the wires as you can see in the photos. I like that they came out, nice and neat. Tripping hazard otherwise. I ran my sensor wires into my cabinet. Once my board comes in from Thanos I'll be ready to hook it all up and run some tests. I took a lot of photos at different angles.
For those following my thread, I had the electrical panel installed today. You'll notice the panels in the top of the picture. Here in the US we use 110v as standard power, I think outside the US they use 210-230? I had to run 6 220v, 20 amp circuits, one for each motor. I'm getting that much closer to testing. Waiting for my board from Thanos, my brake resistors and my 24v power supply.

Stevant where in the US are you located? It seems like most people building motion sims are elsewhere in the world and those who are in the US all seem to be out west. I'm in NorthEast Pennsylvania near Scranton.

Yay you are on the same coast as me =) I have a strange aversion to talking on the telephone, even more strangely this aversion doesn't extend to TS3 which makes no sense. I have a TS3 server we can use if you are up for that we can set up a time to chat but I won't be available until Sunday afternoon.
If you don't do Teamspeak I can suck it up and deal with the phone, Sunday or some time during the week.

fimmy: How's the firmware going?

tronicgr: @fimmy I had to put it on hold to finalize the manufacturing of the new kickstarter controllers. I tested parts of it to ensure compliance with the new features and looks good so far. I'll get back to it soon for integration.

Theuns: Very nice design.I'm also busy with mine and changing it also to Linear Actuators with 220v Servo motors.I'm waiting for my new controllers from Thanos. If I may ask Do you have any Sketchup files of your design and willing to share it I Thanks Theuns

atayeu: Hey everyone! I'm reading up and gathering all of the intel I can find for my first motion platform. this is by far best information for creating one.

tmcnam: I must be crazy but I still can't find the blueprints to the platform by GA-Dawg. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

Trip Rodriguez: Sorry tmcnam, the shoutbox doesn't get much attention. Did you find the blueprints? They are at the VERY bottom of the extremely long first post. It says "attachments: 6DOF.zip
