Over on X-sim you said to me that these servomotors could be used directly with no gearbox for projects like Ian's linear actuators. Which model ClearPath motor were you talking about/which would you recommend for using like this? I see there are three different MCVC servomotors at that price.
I am ok with going to $388 per motor for three motors plus the power supply if it's a good solution (without gearboxes) for building Ian's projects.
This would make my shopping list: 3x MCVC servo motors @ $388.00 each ($1164) plus shipping 1x SST-EMF75 power supply 1x Thanos AMC1280USB
To build Ian's linear actuators for 3DOF would I need anything else besides the parts in the plans? If this is all I need I will get the parts ordered =)
You only need the main board of AMC1280USB. It has connections to hook up to 6 motors if you wish, in PWM mode. You connect the signal cables from the motors directly on the AMC1280USB, no need for other converters or adapters.
You can see in the video, no other electronics required. I'll make a video later to show how to set the correct PWM frequency for the clearpath motors as they need some special range of PWM. Over or under that range, the motor thinks there is no signal and disables itself (which is good safety measure in case something came loose...)
I thought servos could only rotate to about 220 degrees in total so I'm not sure what the 3000 rpm means. Anyway I'm thinking of hooking one of these up to a worm drive. Guess I'd have to get them built over there as well.
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
