    Like the one or other might remember, we already build a motion simulator last year, it was called MS01, the PC which controlls that Simulator was called MS02.
    This year we´re going to combine these two Things in our new build, so MS01 + MS02 = MS03 :D

    That doesn´t mean that we will modify our old Sim, instead of that, we´re going to build a complete new Motion Simulator based on the experiences of our last builds.
    We also decided to upgrade our new Simulator from 2 DOF (degrees of freedom) to 6 DOF so that a more realistic simulation will be possible.

    Beside the 6 DOF transformation we will also use the baseframe of the sim to mount the hardware of the Gaming PC instead of a second Gaming System which stand beside the Simulator.

    Like you could imagine, we had to plan a lot of things & take a lot of measurements before we even could start to order the materials we need to build our Baseframe. But after all the calculations were done, we placed an order so that we could start with the building process.

    That was the pile of metal which arrived after our order....

    Then we put the first tubes into place and fixed their positions so that we could start the welding process....
