    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...

    3D Printing 1/100th scale Saturn V wraps - Has anyone 3D printed these?

    Hello all, Has anyone here created the wraps as shown on the Apogee website here (https://www.apogeerockets.com/Building_Supplies/Wraps/Saturn_V_VacForm_3rd_Stage_Wraps) but instead of vacuum-forming them, has anyone 3D printed them?

    3D Printing COVID Confusion Nose Cone

    Hello! Since paper towels and toilet paper appear to be quite desirable these days, I couldn't just throw the empty tubes away. LOL! I found a good Coronavirus model on Thingiverse and made it into a fitting nose cone in Fusion 360. The virus obviously needs supports, but PrusaSlicer also...

    Minimum Diameter F Rocket

    Is it a bad idea to design a minimum diameter F-class rocket? My concern is the structural integrity of the rocket. I intend on 3D printing (PLA) it with a wall thickness of about 2-3mm. Does anyone have any experience with 3D printing minimum diameter mid-power rockets? Thanks

    K-9 Model Rocket Landing Legs

    Hi everyone! I got a lot of request to open source my landing leg system to soften impact and perhaps even help to propulsivley land a model rocket. Tell me what ya'll think! I love feedback. These were based off of Joe barnard's design. I need to update the leg section on my website...

    Painting CF, FG, and ABS Airframe

    Hi all, I've never done a spray paint job with any sort of precision before, so I hope you'll excuse that I don't know a lot. I just want to be as informed as possible to do as close to perfect a job as I can. My team has a 12ft long rocket with a 7.78" diameter fore section that transitions to...

    1:53 scale Saturn V

    Everybody else is doing it... Ok, so for a variety of reasons, I'm not doing much with the Saturn IB at the moment, but that will change. In the meantime, I'm starting a Saturn V with the goal of having it ready for the 50th anniversary. 1:53 scale so the main body will fit a 7.5" body tube...

    Cormoran II

    Hi everyone, After designing and building Comoran I, I decided to move on and create version 2.0. I wanted a few things for this build: Needs a payload area Fins must be strongly attached to the frame (I had a problem with this on my previous build) Compatible with 24mm motors, both 70mm and...

    Four-Camera HD Video Camera Mount (3D printed)

    I wanted a camera mount to hold four HD video cameras on my Velociraptor so I can see what the fins are doing during flight on the VTS (and perhaps get some other cool footage). So I jumped onto SolidWorks and sketched up something and then threw it in the print queue. After printing in ABS...

    What is considered as "too many fins"? (L2 high powered build)

    I have a 3in thick cardboard tube that I plan on building a rocket around, but to get it stable without an absorbent amount of nose weight, it would require 6 fins on the bottom. Here are some details: - 6 1/8in thick fiberglass fins, 2.5in tall (for anti fin flex) might try 3D printing some...

    Fully 3D printed rocket (3D design contest entry)

    Hello, rocketry community! My entry for the 3D design contest is the fully 3D printed model rocket that I made from scratch. The only part that I did not make in the design are the motors, which are Estes engines (A-C). Easy printing, small print size, durable rocket, easy to finish and put...

    Vertical Trajectory System is Ready to Fly

    I have just completed the VTS and prepped it for its maiden flight, which was to be tomorrow (Sunday). Unfortunately the weather has shelved plans for that for at least another week. Might fly on the 12th August. Full build thread with latest updates here...
