Without a moving chair, or at least a VR helmet - i kinda wonder what the point is.
But good luck, i'm interested to see how it goes.

Built all of it, but this was just a fitting snapshot

still have to cut holes in the side panels, add heavy duty hinges to the right side, so I can step in , and a paint job

Gonna fill those joints with putty and lightly sand, or cover it?

Just curious, cuz I don't know if you intend to stain and poly it.

I suppose I could wait for pictures with the final product as well. Smile

I made it that way specifically to be easily assembled and disassembled. it only takes 4 screws at the base of each component to remove it

I will sand the edges flush to each other

Alphadog, I was test fitting components before I break it down again. The Simpit unit disassembles into 10 parts. Saturday I will I jig out the rest of the access panels for all the cable routing behind the instrument panels and towers ( you can see the pencil outlines). Need to install the drawer 16" slide for the keyboard tray and access hinge on the right side. Then sand out smooth out the edges and paint the unit and place it back in it's home. I will take some more pics as I rebuild it in the garage.

Paint colors :dark gray or black for the instrument surfaces and medium gray, taupe, or olive drab for the rest of the unit

Which do you think would look better

The Simpit unit disassembles into 10 parts undetectable by x-ray, ideal for quick discrete interventions
Smile


I like how you havn't built the Simpit unit around the screens - good idea, allows for much-bigger screens to be integrated into it when they become more standard/cheap in the future.

The screens on-top though, you should overlap their surrounds though, no?

In any event it looks simply awesome.

I like the black for the instrument surfaces and medium gray idea personally.

Not too hard to setup with off-the-shelf parts: a wiimote & an IR light.

Good point roid. Why do it the easy way, when you can build a rube goldberg-esque kludge instead...

(edit: those vids were actually pretty cool but I can't resist a chance to snark)
