As I will be running the rift on my 6dof platform, I have the DK2 camera now on the wall but that is because it is 2Dof.. But in 6Dof I need to have the camera on the platform..
How did you isolate vibrations? And how does the motion feel, mind wise , no problems with the 'internal' sensors?
This is not my first motion sim, so I am aware of the issues in mounting the DK2 camera. My current Rig was designed from the beginning to hold a VR camera, therefore I have a rigid structure and a low center of gravity to minimise any flex (low frequency vibrations) and chosen foam sheet which surrounds the camera to minimise high frequency vibrations. Works well for me, no problems with 'internal' sensors.
I am finishing up my build but my friend would also like a 6 DOF but has problems getting enough power (he is currently renting as he just moved to this state). If you don't mind sharing do you have a build guide (motor, dimension...etc).
Thanks in advance.
Please pardon my grammar....English is my first (and only) language but it may not be obvious
No real guide/dimensions, as most of the design work was done with hand sketches, just don't have the inclination/spare time to do more, but there is a thread with pictures of the build as it progressed and some basic information on another Simulator related site. Don't know if it would be right to link it here? Links OK thanks Thanos, link

What do you think would be a realistic max weight? The reason I ask and one reason I went with AC was my very limited understanding that AC would handle a greater load capacity.
Don't really know, but in testing I moved 70 kg vertically with one actuator, which was adequate for my design- I also fitted gas struts (although it will run fine without them) which offset around 10KG each (3 fitted) to reduce the load on the motors and extend their life. AC was never really a choice for me, just don't have the space, budget, or available mains power for a big AC system.
Could i ask something re the PID tuning, with fabi's software i understand it takes an average off the pot values for each motor to produce the final settings.
when you did it manually i assume you have to choose a motor and use that as the reference and hope the others are somewhere close to the same? as you cant obviously set an individual PID for each motor with the AMC
dureiken: Hi there, it's really quiet here someone could help me for my 6 dof project ? thanks a lot

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.

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
