Our 3D Printer of choice right now is the CREALITY CR10 v3

Great print & build quality for the price, Silent and Has a bigger Print bed of 300 x300mm. Karl personally recommends it for his sim build.

Karl's Second cheaper choice is the CREALITY ENDER 3 v2. Smaller printer bed of 220 x220mm. But performs excellently and has a purchase price of around $200.

737 SINGLE YOKE HEAD.jpg

Sarah Ashmore requested this design. This gauge utilises a 28BYJ-48 stepper with an ultra-mini microswitch for auto-zero calibration. Different 2" gauges are required to fit her actual aircraft panel. The idea is that the different decals can be printed onto the decal plate to represent the different gauges.
