Terms and Conditions

The blueprints are comprised on many files, and are provided without warranty or guarantee of any kind.  They can be used to build your own personal simulator but may not be used commercially for any purpose without prior written consent.  They may not be sold, or bundled for sale.  The 3D formatted elements may not be re-purposed or represented as original work under a different name.  If used elsewhere, written permission must be obtained in advance.

The Simulator Sled is trademarked by Gregg Lagnese and the files are Copyright (c) 2010-2018, All rights reserved.

File Information

Files are supplied as either 2D PDF format files, some of which may have the original handwritten notes, or as DWF format CAD files.  The latter requires a program that can read DWF files.  Many free views are available online, such as Autodesk TrueView.  Using the viewer, dimensions, parts, and fitment can be determined.

If you have questions related to the content, I will do my best to answer them.  Use the links at the bottom of the page to contact me.

PDF Blueprints

PDF blueprints are 2D layouts of the parts.  Some parts where made on the spot with pencil and paper notes that were not saved.  A few of the original blueprints with notes were captured and are provided here.

2012 Build Blueprints

This package largely contains the original build elements

Simulator Blueprints
2011 Scanned Blueprints

This package contains scanned blueprints with hand written notes related to modifications during the build.

DWF CAD Files

The DWF files are the last CAD format files I have modified to represent the current design.  You can use the DWF viewer measurement utilities to get dimensions, and the file itself will show the fitment.

Complete Simulator Sled

This is the full design in 3D CAD format with optional shifter base and keyboard tray, and using the welded monitor rack.

Monitor Stand Mk I (welded)

This is the less expensive route if you can fabricate it, and the mounts.  Watch the How-To videos to learn more about the difference between a Mk I stand and a Mk II stand.

Monitor Rack Mk I (welded)

 

Monitor Stand Mk II (T-slot)

This is, by some accounts, an easier to make monitor stand.  It requires no welding, but will cost more to manufacture.  Watch the How-To videos to learn more about the difference between a Mk I stand and a Mk II stand.

MK II Monitor Stand (T-Slot)

 

Seat Mount (2016)

This is the last version of the seat mount shown in the build videos.  It uses a fixed position unlike the more complicated original design.

Keyboard Support Stand

The original keyboard tray design that uses pins.  Later versions used a bearing and bolt (which did not work out better).  The later videos shows the bearing and bolt design, but in hind sight, the original design worked better.

Steering Rack Mk II

This is the retrofit steering rack shown in the build videos that makes the steering unit table must more solid.  It is significantly more complex that the original design, but definitely stronger.  This version will require some machined parts.
