Boeing 737 3d Printed Seat 'J' Rails

This page is split into three main sections:

Parts Guide

Print Guide

Build Guide

These units can be produced on a standard 3D printer bed size of 220 x 220mm.

My 3D Printer of choice right now is the ENDER 3 v2

Great print & build quality for the price and Karl personally recommends it for his sim build.

General Information:

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.
