Design A: simple - lever is attached to motor horn and 200g of weight 6" away needs to be moved up / down -- so the torque (effort) by motor is 1200) .. yes? Design B: A vertical shaft is added - VERTICAL SHAFT is NOT attached to motor. Lever is extended past the axis by 1.5" We are not able to go past this, yes, I know the longer this is the less stress on motor, however, we are not able to do this. Then the motor is mounted 5" BELOW the axis. A vertical ligament attached to motor horn which is also 1.5" long. I assume the 1200 effort is reduced to 800 then increased again to 1200. So from what I see theoretically there is no advantage to this design over design A... however, it just feels like it should since much of the weight is transferred to the axis and then absorbed by the vertical shaft... So the motor in design B should not be doing as much lifting. .. What am I missing.. why aren't the numbers reflecting this? Thanks! DB.

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.

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
