All SimCraft units (except RTA spec) include pre-installed and pre-configured software in several categories:  Simulation Software such as iRacing.com, the SimCraft Control Panel which serves as both the motion control system and overall simulator manager, and additional supporting software such as Simucube True Drive.

Simulation Software

iRacing.com Motorsport Simulations software has been a standard for SimCraft units since 2009.  We offer additional software such as the Assetto Corsa series, the rFactor series, the F1 series, and the DiRT series, among others.  A complete list of available software, compatible with SimCraft motion technology can be found here:  Compatible Racing Sims

SimCraft Control Panel

The SimCraft Control Panel (CraftCon) is the central hub of all SimCraft units.   From CraftCon, several dozen motion interfaces for any Windows PC based racing game are managed, and more importantly the real-time tuning and motion profile system for easy personalized customization of SimCraft motion technology.  Since every human is different, our motion tech is designed specifically to be tailored to every driver’s unique perception.  Adjustments to 20 parameters can be performed in realtime while racing.  Several baseline motion profiles are provided for fine tuning.  CraftCon also includes quick access to almost all Windows functions and serves as an overall operating and management system for our clients.

Additional Software

Software such as Simucube Test Drive and SimHub are also pre-installed and configured.  Test Drive controls the performance details of the direct-drive force feedback steering system.  SimHub is a feature rich dashboarding system that drives the data display unit, showing lap times, track maps, and many other customizable options.

Craftware SDK

The Craftware SDK is available to all SimCraft clients for custom developed motion interfaces for any bespoke or otherwise privately licensed user application.  The SDK includes full documentation and sample code.

All SimCraft GRID1 units are priced to include full assembly and factory testing where applicable, but additionally the training of the driver (or drivers) on the operation of the system, and follow-on product support for 2 years.

Training

Training is always included in the pricing for all SimCraft systems.   Our installation team is prepared to train you on everything from general usage of the sim, operation of the simulation software (such as iRacing.com), usage of the SimCraft Control Panel, supporting software applications, and even generic WindowsOS usage.  The time required for training is based on our clients existing operational knowledge of the system.   For example, clients already familiar with iRacing (or supplied application software) and the WindowsOS will require much less time for training.   Clients with no WindowsOS or iRacing knowledge will take several hours longer.  Plan for a half day of training, with additional time for each addon application. 

Product Support

All GRID1 units include a 2-year support agreement.

SimCraft clients contact our support team by E-Mail, Web Form, Phone or Text Message. The support agreement covers everything supplied with your SimCraft system including:

  • SimCraft Motion System, hardware and software
  • Hardware Components (such as Simucube) with supporting software
  • Windows OS Usage
  • Basic usage of application software (such as iRacing.com)

Lead Times

Standard lead times for GRID1 systems vary and are dependent on our production capacity (which is always growing), our backlog of committed orders, the quantity of units for your order, and any customization requests requiring research and development.  

Quotations

Formal quotes are provided for all SimCraft GRID1 systems as requested.  Your quotation will cover all product related details and expected lead time.  Your customized quote will require basic client information such as name, contact details, and installation address.  Product options such as chassis color, seat selection, addon steering wheels, addon software applications, etc. can also be included in your quotation.

Payments

For standard lead-time orders we structure 2 payments, a 50% production deposit and a 50% balance payment.  The balance payment is collected at the time of shipping.  Your quoted lead time begins on the day your 50% production deposit is received.

Payment Methods

Accepted payment methods include personal or business checks, electronic wire transfers, or ACH payments.  All major credit cards can be used for up to $10,000 toward your 50% production deposit.

Crating / Shipping

Crating of your SimCraft is included in GRID1 product pricing, shipping fees are assessed by distance from our factory in Marietta, GA.  All systems ship from, or are picked up at this location. 

Delivery / Installation

All SimCraft GRID1 units are designed for installation, almost anywhere, and fit through a 32″ door (without monitors).  Modular design allows any GRID1 unit to be disassembled and reassembled in a few hours, (if required) which means if you have an interior room, a basement, a man cave, an office, or a spacious attic, there is a good chance your SimCraft can be installed there.  A 32″ door and 36″ hallways are usually required.  If you aren’t sure if your ideal spot will work, give us a call or setup a consultation.

Your SimCraft will be shipped LTL.  If you plan to receive the crate at your residence or a location without a loading dock, we will ship the GRID1 on a truck with a liftgate.  The GRID1 is built on a steel pallet, making it very easy to move with a pallet jack.

All complete SimCraft units are built 100% in our factory and burned-in, validating the configuration and setup. When crated and shipped, the monitors are removed prior to shipment and re-boxed in their original packaging. Once the sim arrives and is removed from its crate, remounting of the side screens is required, taking just a few minutes of time.

Pickup

If you are a client that is picking up your sim from the factory, our staff will assist you with the preparation and execution of your load-up.

Shipping outside the Continental USA

SimCraft units have been shipped to and installed in over 20 countries worldwide. We can issue quotes on demand for shipping to most countries, once we know the installation address.

SimCraft manufacturers high-fidelity racing simulators that incorporate our proprietary, physics based, motion simulator technology. Our method and proven philosophy is designed to recreate rigid body dynamics, more specifically, recreate how any rigid body (vehicles and aircraft) move through Earth physics.  Rigid Body Dynamics has taught us that an object such as a car or a plane (both rigid bodies) rotate around three degrees of freedom, and translate along these same axes.  The origin of all 6 possible motions is at the center of mass of the rigid body.  The 6 degrees of freedom are also all independent from each other.  SimCraft motion technology follows these same known principles.  In a SimCraft motion simulator, all degrees of freedom are independent and additionally they all rotate or translate at the center of mass of the cockpit assembly (in this case, also a rigid body)

Chassis Build Quality – MADE IN THE USA

GRID1 systems feature a super-strong, TIG welded, handmade chassis, built in-house at SimCraft HQ in Marietta, GA.  The GRID1 chassis is a steel/aluminum hybrid, its strength and rigidity allow for unmatched performance and the highest standard in durability and longevity with a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

Component Versatility and Future Proofing

Simulator components such as display monitors will all eventually be obsolete and something better inevitably will be available.  SimCraft chassis are designed for component versatility and modularity.   Should you choose to upgrade your sim several years after purchase, new components can be integrated and utilized on your chassis with minimal effort.

Cockpit Adjustments

Human ergonomic adjustments are a key attribute of GRID1 systems for customizable preference for seating position and the driver’s relationship to their racing controls.

SimCraft has been installed in residences, offices, garages, car condos, race shops, research facilities, rehabilitation centers, and academic institutions since 2009.  We have seen it all and are intimately familiar with the right conditions for a perfect installation.

Power Requirements

A 10A circuit for 110/120V supply power is suggested for the GRID1.  (5A at 220/240V supply)

Data

The data needs for your SimCraft are dictated by the application software you choose to use.  Modern Wifi is generally sufficient for simulator data needs, but racing with online human competitors is better in a wired LAN.  Bandwidth is not the only consideration however, reliability is also a factor.   Wifi is generally stable from device interference, but wired LAN is always connected.

Flooring

GRID1 systems are built on easy to move pallets, and can be installed on carpet, rugs, or mats.   If your desired location for your sim is tile, hardwood, concrete, or vinyl, you will need to consider a mat or a rug for the sim to live and operate on.

Conditioned Air

While all SimCraft systems are built for reliability and durability, conditioned air for your sim installation location is a big consideration for the long term health of your sim.  Stainless steel hardware is used through the unit, but surface rust is still possible for garage or warehouse installs with no conditioned air and in the wrong climate.   More importantly, this is a system with lots of electronics and operating temperatures for the supplied electronic components is documented below.
