Boeing 737 3d Printed Seat 'J' Rails
This page is split into three main sections:
The ultimate printer I can recommend is the Bamboo Labs X1 carbon with AMS if you have deep pockets. ($1200). It's a massive leap forward in 3D printing, with excellent quality and impressive speeds. Its pretty much press print and go as the software and hardware do the calibration before each print. This printer will not manage the larger parts and you are going to need the CREALITY CR10 v3, which is my second choice of printer.
This is Karl's design for the Boeing 737 'J' Rails. Each side consists of four rolling trucks supported by cheap roller stake bearings. The lower truck assemblies stop the seat from lifting away or becoming detached. There are two guiding bearings that sit in the rail to guide the trucks.
The prototypes were created using only PLA at 25% infill and Karl found these more than suitable to support most peoples weight.
This provides a very smooth operation and allows easier access to the cockpit.
Karl is busy designing the Ipeco Seats!
If you need the First officer side, flip the design template over.
This design requires a print size of 220mm x 220mm.
