Thanks Moe. The fuselage is 6 sections. You can see them clearly in the photo. They are just stacked together in the photo. I have all the pieces printed now they just need to be glued together. I need to buy all the other misc. pieces as well. The file for the Spitfire came with the software and files for the Prusa i3 MK2S. The plane comes from 3dprintlab.com. They have a nice selection of printable RC planes. You just buy and download the STL files and print away.October 24, 2017 at 4:21 pm #46618
Thanks Johnny for your reply, I’m a nutty RC Builder ( as per wife ) building all type of Planes, Jets, Quads, Helicopters, but now have to get me one off those 3D Printer to build a series of Plastic RC Models. Just finish building a MPCNC kit and so far have just did some pictures plotting, did plot a F 15 Jet bottom plate that came out very good. Now planning to add a drag knife or Needle cutter to cut it in foam board. Not quit there yet, want to modify the four corners assembly so to be able to change CNC size in seconds. After it all done and working I will show the setup in this Forum. After that done I will look at RC 3D Printing. MoeNovember 17, 2017 at 9:10 pm #48022
It’s finally dirty! Got the CNC moved over to the shop and did a couple test cuts in some foam. Might try to go back at some point this weekend to cut some wood. Need to setup some gcode before I go. Also need to start planning how to mount the electronics. Think I am going to need some wire to extend the motors and possibly the LCD. Just need to figure out how best to do it for my setup. Ready to make some stuff. Now just have to come up with the stuff to make.

That looks great. The bottom of your pockets are nice and smooth, that’s a good sign things are square and stable. Time for some coasters!

Looks great! Don’t extend the LCD too far, issues usually start when the ribbon cables get longer than 2′.November 19, 2017 at 2:17 pm #48089Looks great! Don’t extend the LCD too far, issues usually start when the ribbon cables get longer than 2′.
Yeah I remember people having problems with that. I will need to extend the steppers anyway. Plan to order your LCD extension and some wire for the steppers. Then Ill figure out the best way to go about it from there. Will keep the LCD extensions under 2′ for sure.
