I'm looking for a 3D printed sled for a 2.6 airframe. It needs to be 6" long and 1/8" thick between two 10-24 all thread rods 2" apart. I'm all out of g-10 and plywood.

2.6" with 2" rod spacing is gonna be hard to find, I believe, unless somebody designs and prints a custom sled for you.

You may be better off with some plywood from Michaels and two igniter tubes from an Aerotech reload.

A custom sled was kinda what I was thinking after seeing that everyone elses were not the size I need.

If you are looking for a custom sled, I am willing to do it for you. pm me with a sketch include key features and dimensions and I should be able to put a rhino 3d model together tomorrow. I print mostly with PETG, I have two printers and I can fit the print in to the queue.

edit: "https://www.thingiverse.com/Djkingsley/designs" I have posted one of my 98 mm sleds here.

I also can do it for you. It's an easily modified version of this (without holes):



PM to discuss.

Dan, I like the one in your first post (#7) I'm going to have stuff mounted on both sides of the sled so I need max room on both sides. PM me with PP details and thanks.

Merry Christmas! It's so cool to be able to bring your description to life and on your doorstep in a matter of days using this technology, I really enjoyed the idea of doing it.

To those that have asked, I will not be offering any sleds like this for sale on my site. They're such a basic design and there's already other people offering them in standardized fashions. If you have a custom request that is not fulfilled with what's currently available in the market that you want drawn and printed, please send me a PM. I am treating custom parts as more of a service than a product and I have chosen to not compete with those that currently offer printed sleds...Andrew designs a better sled than I ever will.
