Thread: Fusion 360 for modellers
29/03/2017 11:43:49

Hi Bob, it's good to know what things to look out for when in the design process. At present I don't have a printer to experiment with. Thought it better to get to grips with a CAD program first.

It doesn't, matter what servo it is. It's the development and tools that we are trying to learn to use.

Hi Bob,

Have enjoyed working through your 1st 2 designs. I've been wondering how does the printer cope with the small overhang when printing the groove on the bottom of the saddle clamp?

A couple of designs worth looking at -

Servo wing frames

A receiver holder with external mounting lugs and arial guides.

I understand, thanks. i was just checking that I was using the correct part. Yours is coming along well, trust your pleased with it.

Just started to dry fit the tailplane together. Found it quite difficult trying to line it all up whilst putting it together. One thing i have noticed is the bell crank plate is too long to fit between the ribs. Anybody else found this?

My Galaxy Twin scorpion had a similar tail and it lived though many a beating so i wouldnt be too worried.

And lets be honest, why give yourself another part of the model to forget when loading the car? Remembering the wing and tx seems to be hard enough for some so having to remember the tail as well will be a disaster!

Iv'e done that a few times over the years.. I would agree that it would add complications to the build..It's just that the fins and rudders are stuck on the outside with little support. Guess I need to ensure packing the car carefully.

My 110 has just landed. Everything looks really good Richard. Just thinking, how vunrable to damage will the tail plane be when transporting? If so may be worth seeing if it could be made removable. - any thoughts guys

Hi Bob. That's the problem trailblazing with new technologies, slow and cumbersome to start with. Getting new people interested will help to find definitive methods of achieving results using the tools we have on the shortest learning curve.

Bobw - Thank you for all your instruction so far. Each day I run through it trying to commit it to my old brain. Looking forward to the next instalment.

I have had a look at some of the tutorials available through the help menu. It seems there are at least 2 ways of design.

1. Working with solids as you did in your exercise 1.

2. Working in 2d with sketch and using lot of modifiers, then converting to 3d using extrusion.

I did start look at these tutorials but found it very complicated so I left it.

Is that an added bonus with the 110 ? A free bag of pegs with every kit.  I guess that's fair a 110 for me and a bag of pegs for SHMBO.(only after finishing the build.smiley

Do we also get a choice of colours?

Count me in. I would like to learn a little CAD before committing to purchasing a printer.

I see that you have mastered the art of posting pictures Richard

Of course Graham, I need to sort out how to post pictures but I will taking plenty of those!

Are you doing a leccy one?

Hi Nigel,

Yes, mine is going to be electric.. I'm not expecting mine to land until Tue/Wed next week, so can't add to your initial observations.

' Der Adler ist gelandet'!

The Bf 110 seems to have landed by my desk at work, thankfully it is a slow day so playing is the order of the day.

Top job Richard, looks like it is going to be a great build and the Waspen decals are spot on, may well use those instead of making the masks and air brushing, we will see.

First thoughts is to make the nose cone removable for battery access as this is going to be a leccy one, I have been looking around for sound systems and had planned on putting the speakers where the cooling rads are but have to do a bit more research on that one, I will be making the ordinance and bomb dropping mechanisms for under the Fuz and outer wings, was my first need when I first looked into building a 110 many years ago!

I have also started to make the plugs for the various bits and bobs that hang off the air frame such as the aileron balance weights and aerials which I intend to mould in flexible polyurethane resin to make them a little more user friendly.

Nice to have new toys to play with.

Hope that you will put some pictures up for the rest of us to get ideas from.

I think you guys have a book in the making with the antics of Graham, Sweep and Panda. Looking forward to the next entries in their diaries.

May I offer a possible working title (borrowed from Spike Milligan)

Looking really good. Can't wait but still can't decide which version.

This will help with the variants guys... be prepared to be confused to which one you want to model he he he


Hi Paul. Have looked at said article and yes - even more confused.

Hi Gillyg1, I'm glad I'm not the only one.
