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 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.
