Hi all. I'm not sure where this belongs on the forum, so I will ask here since it relates to the overall assembly.
It appears that most people are working off an overall geometry for a 6dof machine that seems to work, but I have not been able to find out where this geometry originated. I also have not seen an in depth discussion of developing the geometry. I would imagine that it is a very complex problem, but I would be curious to get a better understanding of this and how it relates to the drive components chosen. I have read about people using a wide variety of drive component sizes and I'm wondering what is actually needed. I assume that people are scaling up the drive components to account for a larger payload, but I have not seen a discussion of how to determine what is really needed based on an expected payload. It would be really cool to get some measurements from an operational machine also to validate any analysis of the initial design. Has this been done by anyone? Can anyone point me in the direction of any of these details? Hopefully its not right in front of me and I just missed it.
dureiken: Hi there, it's really quiet here someone could help me for my 6 dof project ? thanks a lot

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
