    Onyx and fiber 3D printing on Markforged Mark 2

    Hello, My name is Dave, and I have a Markforged Mark Two Fiber printer as well as a PLA, TPU, PETG, ABS printer. I can print plane and drone parts, and I'm trying to design my own drone for flight (although the last time I made something that flies it was run on a crystal radio in 2003...)...

    FT Viggen in RealFlight

    I got inspired by @tanmaychhatbar and started creating FT Viggen in Fusion 360. My plan was to export it to 3ds and then get it into RealFlight (since 3ds is the supported import format). The nose isn't right. I have to make a physical one and then take measures. Too many angles :-) Will...

    Experimenting with Resin printing (MSLA) for detailed parts

    I've been interested in resin based printing almost as long as I've been interested in FDM (filament based) printing.

    New Project: Open Source 3D Printed Plane Project

    Intro (Skip if You Want!): I've been a long time lurker on these forums, but I do a fair bit of designing/building/flying of planes, and it has been a long term goal for me to embark on a project specifically for by fixed wing fans and put it up on these forums and become a contributor myself...

    Tri Copter inspired by RC Explorer

    Hi All I'm quite a fan of David's Tri-copters, but unfortunately because of the exchange rate, not all is always as easy/affordable as it is suppose to be. Lucky for me I do have some CAD skills and there is always someone some where with skills and materials. So looking at whats available...

    FT Versa Wing Pusher CAD Files

    I created these files in order to cut out some combat Versas on a CNC cutting tool. I did change the design a little, like full span spars, new wing tips, and removal of the swappable pod. Please do not distribute. Only for personal use. Design rights remain with Josh Bixler and Flite Test.

    I have my own laser cutter and I have found some software that can convert the pdfs into vector images but it's never easy to get the designs sized right and everything. Anyone have any experience doing this with some good ideas? My current set up aidecad trial version - converts pdfs to...
