diysim.com is live: From 0 DOF to 5 DOF

diysim.com is now live and is the new destination on the web to plan and build your very own motion simulation rig.

SimCraft began showing DIYers and enthusiasts how to build a motion simulator in the late 1990s. Today, they have moved that effort over to it’s own dedicated website, where all motion systems, kits, and bolt together systems will be sold.

“The idea to move this effort into it’s own business was conceived a couple of years ago”, remarked SimCraft co-founder Sean Patrick MacDonald. “It wasn’t until a conversation with one of our VERTEX3 customers late last year in Matthew Thill before this idea got serious.”

Matthew, a happy VERTEX3 customer for a few years and having used his motion sim to practice for competing in the Skip Barber series, said the decision was easy.

“I fell in love with the way SimCraft motion works and decided that a career change was in order”, said Thill.

After months of planning and development, diysim.com is now live and continues with the SimCraft tradition of helping people build advanced motion simulators that they can use at home.

New products introduced with the launch of the site include, a new pedal set, motion upgradeable cockpits, additional actuator options, software sold separately, and a motion interface for Gran Turismo 6.
