    Scratch Build - Upscaled 3-in "Menace-3D"

    Intro: Over on another thread in the 3D Printing section, there's a friendly competition going on: TRF Challenge #1: Estes Menace and I thought this would be a great opportunity to push myself to learn more Fusion 360. I started back in March 2023 to 3D print small parts, and started...

    Astrorizzicist - My attempt at a mostly 3D printed L2 capable rocket

    Intro I am sharing my progress on a mostly 3D-printed rocket design I started in March of this year. I started the design after losing my first level 2 attempt to the field. The overall goal of this project is to use this for my level 2 flight eventually, and possibly a 2-stage flight in the...

    3D Printing Printing help!

    I don't know what happened, my printer was turning out some pretty nice prints. I have an ender 3 pro. But lately, it's been dropping the ball. It'll start out ok, but then just stop extruding for a second, leading to some real bad prints. Any advice? I've messed with the temp settings, layer...

    3D Printing 3D Model of Eggtimer Quasar Rev G3

    I couldn't find any models of the Eggtimer Quasar G3 so I decided to make my own for designing a 3d printed e-bay. Feel free to use it for yourself: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6093364

    3D Printing Annealing Fin Can Sous Vide

    For day job stuff, we frequently anneal 3d printed parts (plus stress relive machined aluminum, heat treating formed parts etc...). For rocket stuff, things like fins I anneal, I never bothered to do it with av bay stuff, or drill jigs. I have annealed using an oven and even used the dark car...

    3D Printing Replacing Rare Nosecones And Parts With 3D Printed Parts

    As a modest collector of older, rarer rockets, I was delighted to discover and purchase an Estes Stealth. It’s unusual in that a) it’s got a blow-molded, non-symmetrical, canopied nose cone, used in nothing else, b) it has a formed body that fits over a BT-50 body tube, and c) it was only...

    3D Printing 3D Printed Motor Mount(s)

    Hello all! I recently got into rocketry and have enjoyed every moment it so far! While I was building a few rocket kits, I began thinking of ways to make some of the components with a 3D printer, especially parts that can easily be replaced, like motor mounts! Here in this image, I have a...

    3D printed fin "mounts" in a level 3 cert rocket

    I'm in the design phase of my level 3 certification. The base airframe will be a LOC Bruiser EXP. Unfortunately, I think my kit was a mixed bag between versions which means my fin situation looks like this: This obviously isn't ideal. Now, I do have a 3D printer, and the obvious solution to me...

    BT-80 Der Red Max Nose Cone - 3D printer file found

    For those of you wanting to make a BT-80 der Red Max, there is a file on thiniverse to print the nosecone. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3073567 You will need to scale the print up 158.82% to resize it from BT-60 to BT-80. I haven't tested this yet, but thought some of you would like to...

    3D Printing Suggestions for testing 3D printed parts

    This thread is for gathering suggestions on how to evaluate the strength of 3D printed components before flying. For example, how do you ensure a fincan can sustain the forces of a given motor, that the nose cone won't shatter, that the fins won't break upon landing or the shock cord won't...

    3D Printing Aerotech RMS Wrench

    I designed a printable aft closure wrench for the Aerotech Hobby Line reloadable motors, like the one that AT sells but with a longer handle for better leverage and grip. I have not used it yet, although my 29/40-120 case is arriving later today so I will likely use it soon. You can download it...
