    I've just started to design a rig from aluminium profile
    Thinner members are 40x40mm, larger is 80x40mm

    Working on better pedal plate structure and triple monitor mount

    Any feedback welcome

    Looks great buddy, good job! I'm assuming using rift or getting a pre made tele mount

    Alu rigs are takong off ;)

    Looking good indeed. One thing to be mindful of is how you connect you profiles. Check the brackets you want to use, some have short portruding edges which slot into the rail of the connecting profile. A rule of thumb is making sure the rails in the profiles are continous. I d-ont know if this apply to every size or brand, but this was an issue with motedis 45x45 material.
