John's List of 3D Printed Items for Flight Simulation
« on: September 12, 2018, 04:23:20 AM »
Hey Everyone,

Currently, I am printing the Glareshield (MIP) Checklist Holder that Joe Lavery designed and once it's done I'll post the amended file if Joe doesn't mind or maybe he'll post it if he makes corrections for me.

In the past, I printed the Window Handles and Locking Plate objects that I got from Thingiverse. They turned out very nice and smooth; although, they seem smaller then what I've seen printed by others.

Beyond that I have printed some non-flight simulator items, like the sitting Baby Groot and the sample items that come with the CR-10S. So far, all my prints have turned out very nice; well, all but one and that was due to the item coming unglued or unattached from the plate. Thus, I must say that 3D printing is not difficult once you understand the basics and always remember to level your bed, add glue from Elmer's Glue Stick (if using tape and/or glue) and pre-heat the filament before every print...

Finally, I mentioned Thingiverse which is here: https://www.thingiverse.com/ and you really should check the site out even if you don't have a 3D printer. You'll find many objects that are free to download and print (non-commercial-cannot sell your prints). If you have questions about items to print send me a PM and I will help the best way I can...

John

Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to get the discussion of my 3D prints here in the 3D Printing section. I am doing the Checklist Holder for Peter. Here is what I posted in the other thread:

For others who would like one printed, I cannot sell it for a profit since Joe designed this. However, if you pay for a spool of filament to cover my time printing it and the machine time of 10.5 hrs (includes wear and tear, plus electricity), I would make you one.

Also, if Joe decides to print them for others at a profit, I would not object, nor print his design.

And, you guys know Karen and me, we are a very honest couple...always  ;D

If you’re interested, please PM me.

John

Hey Everyone,

Almost forgot, I will print the B737 Window Handles and Bracket pieces for others who want them if you supply the spool of grey filament. Although, these would take a bit longer to do, as well as the first set I did seem a tad small or maybe it's just me, either way I'm going to print a second set. So, once that's done I'll start printing them for others.

Additionally, I have my second printer almost together, so that will speed things up. If you want a set please PM me...the average costs for filament from Gear Best is $25-$30 range and I only buy one brand.

Therefore, either you buy the spool from them and have it shipped to me or send me the amount through PayPal, then I order it myself.

Please remember this is 3D printing and things will not look like the real metal ones in smoothness; however, I will do my best with it. Any sanding or painting is for you to do, but I don't think it needs it.

Best Regards,

John

Hey Everyone,

My next 3D printer trials will be the Map Holder and Cup Holder that goes on the sides of the B737 interior panels, if they turn out well, I will print them for others as a left set and right set for the same exchange of 1 CC Tree filament spool per set. Roughly about $25-30 per set and that is just for the materials, no profits.

In case anyone wants to know why I am doing it this way, it's so I can gain experience with printing for now. I can already do 3D models, but I rather do this in reverse without worrying about designing things yet.

If you're interested PM me...

John

PS I am ordering my 3rd Creality CR-10S 3D Printer and this time it'll be the CR-10S5 model that is 500x500x500 mm. Whereas, my current models are the CR-10S 300x300x400 mm. So, bigger printable items abound in the future... HOORAY!  :idiot:

Hi Dimitry,

I am glad you like it, but this is Joe's design and he gets all the credit...I just printed it. So, if you would, send Joe a thank you  :D
