Posted by karijno in Uncategorized.

With this tutorial we want to help a simmer to build their own platform motion using robust materials and products dBox, market leader in motion systems for gaming and entertainment platforms.

The DBox, a Canadian company, provides all the fans and to all the companies of the simulation do their job, countless OEM solutions for the movement of a platform

For any type of simulators, flight simulator to automotive, from the simulator ships to rollercoaster. Their business is not limited however only to the simulation but also in the cinema.


In fact, the DBOX offers a range of solutions to move their chairs lounge / cinema. Thanks to the cutting-edge software and thanks to a mechanical and an electronic high-performance manages to make a living, as well as for the simulators, a sensory experience like no other.

As previously mentioned, today will try to help a home simmer to build a platform mpbile starting from a hardware DBOX 3250th.

Phase 0: Inventory

For the construction of the platform and its assembly you have to have at hand a Phillips and slotted screwdrivers of different sizes. We also recommend a screwdriver with different tips of different sizes.

Step 1: Purchases

Through a partner DBOX, buy a DBOX 3250i. DBOX found on the website from which all partners buy the product.

Buy or build a seat that allows the safe and convenient use of the mobile platform with the simulator. We recommend a Playseat Flight Sim, very sturdy and easy to assemble (see review http://www.volosimulato.net).

Buy a wooden board with a thickness of at least 3.8 cm in size and 1.00 meters x 60 cm. Watch the trailer of wood used by us for this tutorial, pictured below.


Buy at least 10 self-tapping screws 3.5 cm in length max. These screws must be of equal or lesser size of the holes Media Included in the packaging DBOX 3250i. We recommend galvanized screws 6 × 40 or 6 × 70.

Step 2: Assembly

Now we come to the real assembly phase of the platform!
◾ Take the first support of the actuator DBOX 3250i.
◾ Secure the supports of the front actuator, and screw them using the screws described in Step 0 of the tutorial, on the side of the wooden board that is coming to the ground, just as it is shown in the photo.

◾ Secure the support for the ‘rear actuator, screw it using the screws described in Step 0 of the tutorial, on the side of the wooden board that is coming to the ground and positioned exactly in the middle of the back side of the table, just as it is shown in the photo.

◾ Secure the central unit of the 3250i DBOX precisely to the center of the wooden board, preferably in such a way that it fits under the seat that can be installed afterwards, screwing the unit using the screws described in Step 0 of the tutorial.

◾ Secure the eventual seat PLAYSEAT FLIGHT SIM (or similar) in the center of the wooden platform.

Step 3: Configuring the 3250i DBOX

Now we turn to the configuration of the system.
◾ Connect USB Dongle DBOX 3250i to the PC dedicated to the operation of the mobile platform and the system.
◾ Install DVD that came through the suite of the latest drivers and programs DBOX.
◾ proprietary cable to connect the USB dongle DBOX 3250i. Successsivamente DBOX connect the cable transmission to the control unit located in the center of the platform.
◾ Connect power cable to the power outlet.

Step 4: Drivers and optimization settings DBOX 3250th

After installing the drivers for your system DBOX and the software suite, we can try to figure out how to test our platform.
◾ Here we have the opportunity to choose between two options, and MotionCode GlobalSettings.

MotionCode contains all the titles supported by D-BOX and all versions of drivers that need to run games with D-BOX platform. Each profile of a single game has a game-relevant set of options that allow you to make the ‘experience of the DBOX unique and different from game to game.

The Global Settings tab contains all general options instead of D-BOX system, such as the TEST button to start the system with a lot of movement test of the actuators, but also contains the ControlPanel that allows you to configure general properties and allow through the Monitoring of observe many of the actuators function parameters such as temperature of the actuators, weight and many other useful information for controlling the vital parameters of the DBOX.

After you have configured and tested our system through the ‘appropriate function of the ControlPanel, we can launch our Prepar3D simulator to test and have fun with our new gem.

Et Voila ‘! as you can see the result is an excellent compromise of stability and robustness quality!
