  1. I had cracked mine by over tightening them, they didn't crack that very day but the next day it showed up.

    Ah those ones - thought you meant the top caps :)

    Still find it fascinating watching the snakes though as the print builds. Love a good bit of simple yet effective engineering - not unlike myself :D

    This the reason I tested printing a tall thin part.;)
    TallThin1.JPG
    It looks impossibly top heavy but it remained stuck to the bed and printed perfectly. It got too within 5 mm of the printer's top limit by the time it was finished!
    A ridiculously complex shape it is the wing platform and motor mount of what will be a fully printed "pod & boom" fuselage.
    I claim no advantage doing it this way, it will be both weaker and heavier than the equivalent done in ply/balsa/Depron. Furthermore it also looks like it is going to take rather longer to design and print than it would to simply build and its not as if I am ever likely to want another! :p:p

  8. We are going to need an army and you might as well upgrade their weapons.

  9. Ok no action man for me (yet) but for another 16 month old buddy a little gift. Designed in Rhino, mostly easy until I had to export it and other software didn't like the way it meshed. Tinkercad as an example was just gibberish, just full of anomalies, Cura imported it great other then having a complete flat bottom where the designs are or embossed edges and shadows it left noting on the bottom layers. So about 4 hours of exporting the file and changing the properties still no luck. The file mainly was three pieces put together so lets try separating the pieces and creating three separate files, All came across perfect even in Tinkercad, so imported them into Tinkercad and assembled them there.

    This little guy has a name to live up to, so far it looks like he will be fine, stout little boy. ;)

  14. Yeah, i think if I would have bought any similar printer out there it would probably have been cheaper than my build...

  15. I printed some strut/support adapters for WMRC Mako that could be used for other planes as well and they come in handy to get exact 45degrees support using a 2mm CF rod. Very simple design, nothing too fancy. The adapters slide over the CF rod for easy attachment.

    Hi Guys,
    I've been AWOL for a while doing lots of overtime at work and this is what I bought with my ill gotten gains, quite possibally the most fasinating, frustrating, annoying, brilliant thing I have ever bought!!
