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.

737 SINGLE YOKE HEAD.jpg

This page lists all the hardware and electrical components required to build the Boeing 737 Single control Column for your sim.

​Designed to be as simple and cheap as possible. This can be achieved with the use of a 3d printer, some hardware and a piece of PVC pipe.

This unit is designed to have effective force trim/feel by returning the unit to the centre or set datum point by the trim actuator. The trim actuator is controlled by the trim switches on the yoke. If you do not want electric trim, Use a piece of bar to hold the unit instead. 

​The unit can be driven by the rim switches, but if you would like more control over the speed of operation and wiring simplicity, I have included the optional speed controller. This is rated at max of 3A, the same max draw of the 150mm Actuator. 

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