Hello from Cornwall, UK.
After finishing prototyping the new V7 Boeing 737 Glarewings, they are now available in the shop in 2 versions, STL and STL with CAD.
These just went flawlessly from design to production. The compound curves do make these units flow and look gorgeous.
This time I managed to fit the underlighting cutouts in and adjusted the angle, so they shine directly on the MIP below.
Each Glarewing is constructed from 8 parts to make one unit. Designed with slot together functions and to be hollow to reduce weight and PLA usage. I also printed the prototypes without support. If any sagging happened, it would be internal and not seen.
Each unit was printed on the CR10 with a 300 x 300mm bed size. After loading the design into Cura, it appears that it will fit on the Ender 3 bed of 220 x 220mm. But I have not personally tried this.
At the base of each unit are mounting holes for 8mm bolts to help hold these units secure. Once printed and built, these produce a solid and rigid unit weighing 1.8kg each. I used Amazon basics PLA black for this project.
If you have any feedback, please let me know. This is going to make the v4 sim look great from the start!
Kind Regards, Karl
