    3D Printing Printing/designing nosecones

    When designing a printed nosecone, how thick should the wall be? Is 2mm to much, about rigth, or not enough? Should you use 100% infill or what? I assume it is a good idea to set the slicer to print the outer wall first, are there any other settings that are good to use for nosecones? For a...

    Sanding/Painting: Filament wound fiberglass nosecone

    So I've purchased a filament wound fiberglass nosecone from Wildman Rocketry. My question is what's the best technique to sand and paint this nosecone? I'm going to assume Eye Protection and Lung Protection, because fiberglass in your eyes or lungs is not good. I'm curious about what grit...

    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. 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...

    Odd Looking Nose Cone

    I just bought a pack of nose cones and one of them looks odd to me. I've attached a picture. Can anyone tell me what the mass at the back is? It's behind the eyehole for attaching chute and shock cord, so it seems it would just get in the way of those and serve no purpose. I saw someone on...

    Any suggestions for repairing a fiberglass nosecone with a chipped tip? The damage was from some of the smaller kids handling it at a local science show, not a ballistic landing. As you can see from the photos, it's chipped through the fiberglass layer. Some ideas I had were to "build" a tip...
