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

This design has taken years to get right in CAD. It's a very complex shape with many compound curves. It is designed to fit on the cyclic base or be used as a souvenir. I initially started this out with filament printing on my Ender 3, but then switched to Resin printing for that excellent, highly detailed finished look. Designed like the real thing with the exact dimensions and button count. The text is engraved, which allows it to be filled afterwards.

The top hat is a cheap $2 navigation switch, and the trigger has a dual detent press but only entirely operates by a single microswitch at the fully depressed position.
