Proto Pasta CF filled HTPLA from 3D Filaprint in Essex, just run it at normal settings and through a normal nozzle on my Dremel printer.

Post cured at 100 deg C for an hour, then 125 deg C for and hour then finally 150 deg C for 30 minutes, so I don't know what the actual temp. was around the exhaust but the parts had seen 150 deg C for 30 minutes in anycase.

The clamp is more of a support than a clamp, it has about 0.5mm clearance to the minipipe.

My most complex print so far. A 'spare' ASh-62 and bulkhead mount for my AN 2.Xash-62

It follows my usual 'lots of bits glued together' approach in fact there are 73 individual pieces just to make up the 9 cylinder radial. It is also self coloured, the parts being printed in silver or black filament as appropriate.

Intended to replace the slightly simpler version current installed in the AN 2 if and when it got damaged but so far that hasn't happene

 

thats a fair bit of crafting there Simon, very nice too  .. how long in total print time did you commit to it ?

I'm also working on an exact copy of the Szekely SR3, so much time spent converting images into drawings into parts.. I can't seem to be able to get any good 3 views or technical drawingsof it to work from.

 

Using Lockdown to help develop a better set of skills in both 3d software and 2d cad..  I'm enjoying working in virtual (3d and 2d) as I dont have an infinite supply of modelling materials.

I wanted to be able to film the maiden flight of my LA-7 and didn't want to have to rely on others to do it for me. Whilst I have cameras I haven't got an action cam (Go-Pro etc) so thought I'd try out my Mobius 2. Mounting it on my cap meant that it was pointing down so I made this clip which, on trialling it in the garden seems to work OK. Quite what it will be like in the field is anyone's guess!

Last year I converted my 16 years old Tutor 40 to VTOL for it's final and unplanned landing surprisecrying 2. That shortened it considerably and what could be saved was consigned to the spares store.

I always like to have a trainer to play with so sought a replacement, which courtesy of a seller on Ebay I now have. Though it's hardly been flown it did have it's noseleg "locked off", which is an absolute pain. The problem with 3D printing the required steering arm and mount was that it would need to be highly durable so the usual PLA was not even worth considering at all. ABS would be better but nylon better still.

Well I bit the bullet, did some research and to my surprise my first nylon printed failed due to a filament snag and then success came at the second attempt. This is going to be a game changer for my future modelling needs.

So here is the completed assembly:

The was also an issue with the push rods, one of them rattling against it's nearest former so decided to convert to snakes (as I did with the original). This time using ABS I made some push rod/snake exit covers.

Ron,

Nice! Did you design it or is it available somewhere. Could be very useful for when we get the WR P51.

Made a 3D print of a King Air Engine Cowling, that I then used to make a mold for production of the final fibre glass part.
