Anyone out there 3D printing/selling nosecones for BT-60 tubing? Specially interested in Ogive 5:1 or Von Karman profiles.
Thanks, but those are for 38mm not BT60 which is just a little larger.https://www.apogeerockets.com/Build...iberglass-5-1-Ogive-Nose-Cone?cPath=42_47_61&
The Von Karman is sold out, 5:1 ogive has only one left.
Yes, I was aware of the Estes cones before I posted. Their construction is not adequate for HPR.I hadn't noticed before, but the second link, to a Rocketarium page, actually just has a regular Estes product.
Shapeways offers help with designing and, not on that front page but elsewhere, my initial searches turned up plenty of ovive and some VK nose cones that could be adapted easily if they're not the right size. I just did a new search and found this 5:1 VK for BT-50. A 1.677:1 upscale makes it fit BT-60, and I feel sure they'd do that for you.
And my point all along was that these results came up with very quick, easy searches. My google-fu is reasonably good, but not the best, and I'm at work with time restrictions and corporate site blocking, so there must be a dozen places to get these if one takes more time to look.
