    Any chance you might upload those to thingverse? I would like to print one for a rocket I am building.

    I'm working on adding a bit more to my OpenSCAD file so I can put it in Customizer with options for MMT size and screw holes instead of using Command Strips. I'll post again when I get it done in a couple of days.

    Cool. I can wait for those kind of features.

    Printed off some test pieces for my next model rocket project, loosely based on the Long March 2C

    I printed a sidewinder missile on my Ender-5 from files that I found in Thingiverse. I still need to dial in the sim, but hopefully it will fly next weekend in an E30. It’s just basic Hatchbox PLA, so we’ll see how it holds up. I’m just excited because it’s my first 3D printed rocket.

    Made a replacement nosecone for my Mina A Heli

    Printed in CF-PETG (because that is what I had loaded and I am lazy) it is heavy enough that the rocket came down inverted. It'd be a easy to fix this, if somebody wants to do the math, but I am done with it.

    I've got an entire printed nc/hinge assy for the mini A heli, well, fin assy too. Bought a kit and knew I'd never get all those cardboard pieces aligned well. Was easy, looks good, but never had a chance to fly it at N60. Must get it written up.

    No complaints for the Ender 5. I’m a noob, and I’m just printing with basic PLA thus far, and I haven’t made any mods to the printer yetI. But it seems to be working great in its stock configuration. I really like the magnetic bed. It’s often maligned in online groups, but I think it works well.

    The same is true for the Anycubic Photon. Between the two, I’ve probably printed a dozen things thus far. Maybe I’m just lucky, but no issues. (I hope I didn’t just jinx that.)

    I'm attempting to print an Omni-Pad head. In a Da-Glo orange that I have mixed feelings about. It looks like a 13 hour print. I want to see if it can be done....

    Is that just the retainer cap? Is there a second part that mounts to the body tube that this part screws onto. Would love to see the design.

    And you say, what's that got to do with rockets???

    Take balsa block, drill holes in both ends, 1/2" on one 5/16" on the other. glue in hardwood dowels sticking out 1.5" the small dowel goes into the bearing block, the large one in the drill press. Clamp bearing block with drill press vise. Now you got a live center vertical lathe! I use a belt sander to grind down the schnozz cone. Will post more photos later, I don't have the tube the cone is for yet.

    That bearing is a standard 608zz bearing. same size as skateboard bearings, but cheaper and not sealed, but at less than $8 for two dozen...
