Ways to add Heave

A motion system for heave is desirable for many forms of motion simulation, but often difficult to implement. @SeatTime came up with a simple idea, use a seat mounted heave plate driven by a motor and lever: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/seattimes-dc-motor-sim.5024/page-7#post-56322


They say the simple ideas are always the best. Here @Pit provides a simple but very effective way to add heave to seat shaker designs, by adding a hinged plate under the pivot point.

Heave is not easy to implement and there have been many different approaches, here @ericRacer uses an air jack: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/my-new-3dof-4motors-arduinoméga-sabertooth.4926/
