I came across a great post yesterday, which goes into all kinds of details on calculations for designing a 3DoF system. In this case a spring is used to take on some of the load.http://x-sim.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3 ... tion#p8184
I was wondering if instead of using a lever or s sping you could use a gas shock;
Either one shock positioned in the middle of the platform;
Or three shocks which would be positioned in between two motors
The shock could be adjusted based on the expected weight of the platform.
Would the shock dampen the system too much?
