Its very easy to connect it for this mode. I think only two wires, Ground and Analog out from the 6DOF ext board.
Then you can also try the other mode that is following the pulses from the AMC1280USB to position the servo drive. The difference is that I use one channel for pulses and one for direction so I can count the pulses for each direction. You should be able to configure the servo drive for Step and Dir function.
Thank you for your well considered answer Thanos. Good to know the AMC1280USB can be used with these AC servo motors.
The AC servo on the link is 600W but I'm thinking that a more powerful motor ( say 1000W for a 6DOF ) would give me more of a safety margin. By this I mean I won't need to drive the higher powered motors to their limit and would be able to use a lower worm gear ratio ( say 40:1 ) instead of 50 or 60:1.
I want to use servo motors because they are specifically designed for motion control. There are other types of solutions and motors like AC induction or DC etc of course, but I want my 6DOF to replicate the motion of all degrees of freedom with high fidelity.
In terms of cost, DC appears to be the cheapest, followed by AC induction and then Servo motors. But there isn't really that much difference in cost between these.

tronicgr: dureiken Hi, Open a thread and I'll try my best to help. A little busy with Kickstarter details at the moment but I'll see what I can do.

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
