Hello experienced users. Was reading this forum a lot and it did answer more questions than xsimulator did. To keep things short - I'm running two DOF platform with amc1280 and two 4p 1,5kw wormgear boxes with 1:30 reduction.
Also running a pitch axis problem where reducer backlash creates bouncing issue (also on top not well adjusted pid settings).
You can observe backlash here -
And bouncing it creates here (might seem not as much, but it is)-
This issue doesnot apply to yaw axis, because it does not experience weight shifting as much and works really well.
Xsim guys reccomended that actuator of some sort was used, but to swap all equipment to servo is quite expensive. Was looking into other type of reducers and boxes like planetary for AC induction will go for crazy four digit prices. Asked salesman about this and he reccomended helical bevel reducer for this task as it handles much higher loads, has a little lower backlash and might go under 600 euros.
Am I missing skmething really important here and rethink from scratch or should try his advice?
What would you do? Any advices would help.
P.S. this platform is not ment to be fast and responsive, rather go ways of slower and smoother.

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
