3D printed parts and files

Postby vance2loud » Sun Jun 12, 2016 10:34 am

I thought it might be an idea to start a section for people to put printed parts files.
I'm thinking this format'
1. picture of the printed part
2. zip file with STL or similar 3d file
3. any hints or tips for printing

Please keep it rocketry related.

If you don't have access to a 3d printer there is online services available to print objects for you.

gives a list of services local to you and rough pricing.
I have not used them but it was one of the first lists that came up from a google search.

I don't know if this was the best place to put this, so if moderators feel it should be elsewhere please move it for me, or delete this line If I got it right.

As a start here is the nosecone that Is mentioned in the Proton M thread.

STL file size exceeds limits to upload, so we might have to find another solution.
For now it's here. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1621724
No supports required
set number of walls to to give required wall thickness
If wanting hollow set bottom layers to 1 or 2,
I use a raft for better bed adhesion ( and to allow for slight calibration errors)
Cut bottom off when done for a hollow cone.

For couplers I use these,
http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1596640
scale to size and cut bottom off in slicing program before printing.
I have had issues with the threads being a bit tight but I am trying different settings and scaling and will update with what works for me.
Thread fit will possibly be printer dependant.
