The kits from Boyce Aerospace are ALL 3D printed.
Rocketarium has started to include 3D printed nose cones, boat tails, and detailed scale parts for some of their kits.
Estes put out the Orbis bulk pack for educators. Tubes, chutes, and hardware for 12 rockets. Files are downloaded for the fin cans and nose cones, and printed on a 3D printer.
A current drawback is the micro ridges must be sanded down or filled. I anticipate that next generation printers will make this a thing of the past.
And what a boon for cloners! Someone just posted the files for a Maxi Pershing nose cone and fins over at the "other" forum. Makes it so easy.
So +1 on a new sub forum. Cheers.

Ok. You guys come up with a name for the forum and a description for it. I'll then create it.

Don't forget .stl!

When we had a similar subject matter request on the old usenet rmr we just used subject markers.

[printed parts]

My mistake, I meant .stl not .sql

I've created the forum and added the extensions requested, substituting stl for sql. ;)

Note that the forum still has an upload size limit of 2mb for each file.

Let me know what threads I should move into the new forum from the Projects and Building Techniques forums.

Really threw me for a few minutes tonight when I couldn't find a couple of my 3D build threads under Projects anymore! :eek: I thought they'd been lost at first. Did a search and found they'd been moved the new forum. Whew! At least they are not gone.

Scott,

Go ahead and move my "Mercury Redstone 1:75" to the new 3D forum.

Also, any way to edit the title of a thread, the scale is really about 1:52 for the Redstone, not 1:75. :)

Done and done. Sorry to give you a fright with your messages!
