Well you can buy good stuff for much less today

This is "just" 32K €:

But hey it's an amazing project to build yourself, lots of fun if you have the time, space and tools.
Today there are dozens of projects where to take designs and inspirations, check out deeply that community.
Just consider that it's probably not a done and forget thing; it will need some sizable chunk of money spent every year to keep it running (if you use it frequently).
For sure a DIY solution is at least a third less expensive.

And we are talking about a 6-DOF.
If you scale down to a 2/4-DOF the price, complexity, time and space needed goes down very quickly.
I have a Rinoseat with a G25, I drive with an Pimax 5K or an HTC Vive, and I thought about putting a 2-DOF.
It doesn't cost a fortune and doesn't take more space than the seat itself.
Yes it's nowhere to be near the same immersion but the punch of acceleration and braking means already a lot.
With a nice VR headset it's more than enough to keep you at home

Spoiler!
I was almost there many times
But never got enough time and then I became an expat so...

I'd recommend to start from here:

https://www.xsimulator.net/

The main problem for this DIY project at the end is always the same: the pistons (the AC or DC servo motors).
All the successful projects I've followed are still replacing the pistons every 6-9 months.
There's hardly anything you can buy off the shelf that can sustain that kind of workload without breaking.
Even if you are really a feather weight at some point they'll fail.
All the commercial products either they use insanely expensive and/or custom designs or they suffer from the same issue.

toolmaker03 ok, so I have been kicking around this new idea for quite some time. I am considering building a driving motion simulator for my next big project. what do you guys think? and where would I post the build log for something like that?


the simulator I want to build, would be a duel motion simulation setup. the bottom would be a motion plate, with a faster full motion cage attached to the top of that. this would be a $7000 to $10,000 project kind of like the one I am finishing here. so it will take me 4 to 5 years to finish this project.




and then when I add the inner metal frame, it will be a motion cage.




maybe one day we will actually get hover cars.

toolmaker03 well I did order my memory, I got two sticks, as memory keeps going up, almost on a weekly basis now. it might be here next month, or it might be here six months from now. in truth I really do not know when, or if, it will be delivered at all. all I can do now, is wait and see what happens.

I had a older version of the water cooled TEC system by swiftech, kind of like this one but with the MCW50 water block.


https://www.overclockersclub.com/rev...tech_mcw6500t/


I fried my K7 system with condensation caused by that setup.


well, seasonic just released their new line of power supplies the connect series, and I hope that I can get one for sale, by the end of this year. it would solve a lot of the little issues I am having, with the current wiring setup I have for power.
