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 came about when Karl took the controls of his own sim pit. Fully functional EFIS panels are expensive, and Karl needed the full operational capability offered by Prosims functionality. This set him out on a mission not only to create a fully operational unit to upgrade his original design but create a unit that can be 3d printed and assembled by anyone at a push of a button.
This design is based around the Liteflow laser etched panel by www.cockpitsimparts.co.uk. This means if you purchase there Efis faceplate, it should fit directly on this working design. This will enable all parts to be backlit.
If you want to print the parts and keep it really cheap, it can still be backlit by printing the faceplate in white PLA, spraying great and removing the paint with sandpaper on the raised text. It's not going to produce pristine results, but it's going to work.
On the other hand, you can print in PLA grey and use a white paint pen on the raised text for a good finish.
This unit offers all knobs with working pushbuttons—rotary switches and encoders.

This design requires a print size of 220mm x 220mm.
