SimCraft – Introducing the AXIS Line Plug ‘n Play Motion Peripherals

SimCraft is a Marietta, Georgia, US-based company Founded in 1998. The are manufacturing simulation equipment for professional motorsport, aviation, driver’s education, and the enthusiast markets all over the world, shipping their product to over 30 countries.

Recently, we reported that during 2017, SimCraft will be launching three new products under a brand new product category called SimCraft “Plug ‘n Play” motion peripherals under a new product line entitled, AXIS. Simcraft has now released more details and pricing information regarding the new AXIS1Y, AXIS2SS, and AXIS2RP motion platform solutions.

The new AXIS line of products follows SimCraft’s unique approach to motion by combining the hardware mechanics of real physics and SimCraft’s own high-performance motion control software, CraftCon. Each of these new products features a “universal” mounting surface to mount existing “static” racing and flight rigs.

The primary goal for this product line is to make it easy to add motion to the vast array of existing static rigs.”, said Sean Patrick MacDonald, SimCraft co-founder, and chief technologist. While we can’t possibly support every rig on the market, we would like to be as versatile as possible. We are expecting some refinements over time to the universal mounting surface but I think we have a well thought out starting point.

SimCraft is offering a free consultation to potential customers to make sure their setup will be compatible, even offering a refundable deposit for these types of scenarios. Deposits of $500 are being taken for pre-orders on SimCraft sister company website DIYSIM.com to secure a spot in the production schedule.

As a special one-time offer, the first 10 customers of each product will receive a $500 discount on the final payment of their chosen system. Systems are expected to begin shipping September 1st, 2017.
