MotionMax Manager 2DOF to 6DOF Car Racing Motion Simulator

MotionMax SCN Edition – 6DOF Simulator – Track Imola (90s) Car Ferrari F1 (click image to zoom)

I started the MotionMax Manager project in 2015 and include the full support of 6DOF motion simulator platform (and its 2/3/4/5DOF declination) in 2018, From PRO to casual with a full 1:1 level motion driving simulator to a simple cockpit or VR rig the 6DOF (or 2/3/4/5DOF version) of MotionMax Manager is easy and powerful and supports a maximum of games and simulations.

MotionMax Manager is definitively a PRO Racing driving simulator software even if it can be use for flying-sim. The internal vehicle physics interpreter (V.P.I.) provides an ultra-realistic motion result in all car categories (Formula 1 and other open wheel categories/Endurance/Proto/GT/Rally/Kart).

 

MotionMax Manager FREX Edition 6DOF and 2DOF is available for purchase to general public from FREX Japan.

It is included with simulators manufactured by private motorsports companies, OEM hardware motion simulator companies and actuator manufacturers who are in partnership with us.

MotionMax Manager SCN Edition is also available with a full support of Dyadic SCN actuators. contact us if you’re interested by this software edition.

NEW Version 15 Of The Z-Ring Is Out!

NEW Version 15 of the Z-Ring is available for download today!

 

[EN]

Z-Ring v15 is available for download

The difference between versions 14 and 15 of the Z-Ring is a short heel and a recess bottom to make room for a lock nut (see installation for more information). This allows a complete stability of the QR even in the event of repeated big vibrations using your Fanatec Podium DD1 or DD2.

La v15 du Z-Ring est dispo au téléchargement

La différence entre les versions 14 et 15 du Z-Ring est un talon court et un fond évidé pour faire de la place pour un contre-écrou (voir l’installation pour plus d’informations). Cela permet une stabilité totale du QR de votre Fanatec Podium DD1 ou DD2 même en cas de grosses vibrations répétées.

2 DOF With Traction Loss D.P.S. Simulator Concept By Zappadoc

Hi,

The Double Pivot Structure simulator is the most easy way to build a 2 DOF simulator with a traction loss layer. This kind of simulator are compatible with MotionMax 2 DOF.

For your personal DIY motion project feel free to use, improve, share, build this simulator and create a showcase video on your YT channel to show your creation.

IMPORTANT:  The top first pivot (for TL Layer) must turn at 360° *FLAT* like a boat seat swivel base for example.

VDASH-EMU is an emulator, but what’s an emulator?

VDASH-EMU is an emulator, but what’s an emulator?

EKSIMRacing created the SLI-PRO EMU (SLIEmu) in 2009 during the creation of the SLI-PRO USB display in collaboration with Leo Bodnar at this time it was necessary to test the software even before  the availability of the prototype of the USB card, for that stuff we must create what is called an EMULATOR, which aims to reproduce exactly the internal software of the card (the FIRMWARE) and according to the commands sent to the card (so to the firmware) to get the same behaviors for leds, display panels, gear, buttons, encoders, switches, etc.

SLI-PRO emulation on Android (first gen EMU released in 2009):

By doing this you can test your USB display card management software without having the card available physically. That’s how the first racing display emulator for Android was born.

In engineering, emulation is commonly used during development and before the manufacture of a new product. F1 engines are emulated to optimize their efficiency and effectiveness.

VDASH-EMU is the 2nd generation emulator (much more powerful) and it is not a simple graphic dash racing as we can find tons on the net, it’s firstly an emulator of an USB device ( the SIM Race F1 SIM Display) in other words the internal software of the USB card (the firmware) is emulated which allows to use it exactly like a real racing display, which also allows to have 32 buttons , 5 encoders, 3 switches, 15 RPM leds, 6 Marshal Leds, 7 externals leds, 2 display panels (right and left) of 4 digits of 14 segments and one central digit of 7 segments for gear.

All configurations applicable to the SIM Race F1 usb card are applicable to the VDASH-EMU. In addition to the standard graphical objects (digital and analog gauges, telemetry DATA, tach, labels, etc.) there are some objects directly managed by the emulator, including the left / right panels, the object RPM shiftlights bar, all Leds, big gear object (central gear display), buttons, encoders, switches.

So you can read the doc and tutorial of SLIMax on the SIM Race F1 usb card because it’s directly applicable to VDASH-EMU objects.

For $5 (license of VDASH-EMU) you have the same features as the SIM Display USB Display Card + a full buttonbox + a complete virtual racing dash with hundreds of dash templates ready to use.

A high resolution SIM Race F1 template for the VDASH-EMU is available at EKSIMRacing VDASH-EMU templates repository (see the link below), this is an example of template using objects managed by the EMUlator:

Here is template this time using several objects:
