Build Guide

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 is primarily based around creating plastic drive gears. However, if you have the option to purchase metal bevel gears, this would be the more ideal solution. Why not give the 3D printed gears a go and see how you get on. This way there is no need to change the design for the time being. When messing the bevel gears you want to make sure the fit is tight to reduce any backlash in the system.

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