Hi all,

Loved the Simhub app and everything it does. I have Dash Studio and Bass Shakers working perfectly.

I now want to add rumble motors to my pedals. So I bought a Arduino Uno Rev3 and a Arduino Motor Shield rev3. This can handle only 2 motors but that is all what I wanted.

Problem is that Simhub has a sketch for the Adafruit, Motomonster or the DK Motor shield. None of these work on my original motor shield rev3.

Can anyone help me with this? Google did not help because I only find Adafruit sketches ...

 

Info of the  Arduino motor shield can be found here : Link to motor shield info page

Hi ! 

This board is not supported out of the box I'm afraid, and sadly it's 4 times more expensive than any other alternatives, so it's it a pretty bad candidate for stock support in Simhub. You have the list of all supported boards/wirings accessible here: https://github.com/SHWotever/SimHub/wiki/Arduino-Shake-It

By reading your board specs I see simply driving it with PWM (in the sketch setup you can configure pwm outputs directly) on D3 and D11 should be enough :

Which gives :

I can't ensure it will work, but, in theory, that's enough 😀

It works! Thanks for the quick answer!!!

I know I've bought the wrong motor shield ... stupid of me. Oh well 🙂 this will do. Again thanks!!

Similar problem here. I've bought this board :

 

https://www.jaycar.com.au/arduino-compatible-motor-servo-controller-module/p/XC4472

 

can't seem to get any sketch to fire the motors. I am using it as a wind gereator so linking it to "speed"in simhub. Is there a way to get it to work or do I need a different motor shield?

PS. I have taken off the PWR jumper and am powering the shield with 12. Fans are two wire dc 12v computer fans.

Thanks!

Hello,

Did you manage to make it work? I have the same shield and it only outputs around 5,6V instead of 12V (supply is a 12V 2A - measured 12,1V).

Did you have to do anything else besides pop the rev3 on top of the arduino and set the pins to 3 and 11 as shown? I have a L298P clone and I cant get my fans to spin (which worked on my DK clone shield), but the lights go on when testing it in simhub, just no fan spin :/
