    3D Printing Tube Sanding Made Easy

    I designed a Tube Chuck in order to sand tubes faster/easier. Tube Chuck Printables Link Printables model description mentions everything you need to make use of the tube chuck. Why did I make it? I'm glad you asked. I was doing my L3 project and wanted to fiberglass all of the body tubes. I...

    2.64" Madcow Bomarc

    This will be a somewhat detailed build thread of my Madcow 2.64" Bomarc, with lots of photos :). I purchased it from Madcow during their 20' Black Friday sale, with the help of a $40 gift certificate I received from my 2019 Secret Santa. TY SS :). Note that I deviated significantly from...

    SpiderMax Scratch Build

    Last week, I finished my scratch 3-inch Goblin, The Great Hobgoblin. I haven't been able to fly it yet and I am planning to Level 1 next Sunday with it. The weather hasn't been great and I didn't get a chance to get out to Harsel, Colorado. I had thoughts of heading down to Alamosa, Co. for...

    3D Printing 3D Printed Rocket - 3pcs, no glue.

    I picked up a Creality Ender 3s Pro a few months ago, and among several other projects, I thought it’d be cool to see how easily and reliably I could print a rocket. Design was done in Fusion360, slicing done in Cura. Using data from Fusion and Open Rocket, stability looks good. Material is...

    3D Printing 3D Printed Nose Cone / E-Bay concept

    I've been working on a few variations of 3D Printed Nose Cones with E-Bays. They're working well in the 54mm size so far, I look forward to trying out my 3in and 4in designs this spring!

    3D Printing Soon to join the ranks of Prusa owners.

    This morning my wife gave me a nice surprise. We now have the funds available to purchase a Pursa Prusa i3 MK3S+. I have lurked these 3D printing sub-forums off and on for awhile now but I still have some *basic* questions. 1) Which sheet option should I select with my purchase. The smooth...

    Chocolate Rocket

    This scratch build began with my son taking a knife to a Nerf football and stuffing it into a Tootsie Roll tube coin bank - a small one. He brought it to breakfast and told me he wanted to turn it into the Chocolate Rocket. He sourced some tube fins from the Rolo candy cane tubes you see at...

    Gorilla Glue "Snot Rocket"

    My Gorilla Glue "Snot Rocket" recently made its first flight! The idea was simple - I was changing a caulk tube in my caulk gun one day and thought the business end looked like a ram-jet. From that moment, I knew I had to see one fly. I headed to Lowe's looking for a tube that had a screw...

    3D Printing Anycubic Photon Users (+other SLA's?)

    So I know that there are at least a couple of other Photon users on TRF. I've bought one and have it sitting here, but haven't even plugged it in yet. So many questions, and years of FDM printing experience don't seem to apply much. I know there's a Photon group on Facebook, and I've gotten a...

    3D Printing Is Electroplating too much metal?

    I know were not supposed to use "any significant metal parts" but i have been experimenting with electroplating nickle to ABS plastic. i was wondering if I were to plate nickle to the payload section for increased durability if this would violate the safety rules? the plated section would house...

    3D Printing Just installed a Micro Swiss hotend -- fan question

    Finally got some downtime between projects and have installed a new Micro Swiss all-metal hotend for my Ender 3 Pro. (also switched to Capricorn tubing) The install was pretty straightforward, and I followed the video instructions on the Micro Swiss website. I had to adjust the z-stop slightly...

    3D Printing Good alternatives to Hatchbox PLA?

    I was going to buy some new Hatchbox PLA and see that Amazon was out of most of the colors (including the two I was looking for, of course). The Hatchbox site also shows much of their stuff as unavailable. I'm not sure what the issue is here, or if this is a long-term thing. Does anyone...

    3D Printing X-sled for 3" and 4" rockets

    Inspired by https://www.rocketryforum.com/threads/av-sled-first-printing-project-feedback-appreciated.151171/, I thought I would make a "plain" X-shaped avionics sled. No customization here, just a blank canvas for all your electronics and batteries. Sized for both 3" and 4" bays. These...
