Re: VIIC 1:45 modell

Deck cutting took about 4.5hours overall for 1mm finnboard. You might want to add max 10% spirit (ethyl alcohol; "Spiritus") to your resin. This ensures that the resin will not harden rock solid. The deck will be held in place by neodyn magnets. 15W Laser: Speed 500mm/min , 2 passes, Light intensity...

Re: VIIC 1:45 modell

Deck Layout (Directors Cut). First test sheets, on the right, resined and ok. Material will be 1mm Finnboard. But i do have to re-tyre my laser cutter. We do have a disagreement about "linear" or "straight". If that won't help i need to design me own one with linear bearings and stuff (but boy am i ...

Re: VIIC 1:45 modell

Sharky shows its teeth ... on to the technical stuff. Hull will be beautified when everything else is in working conditions. Deck drawing for laser finished. Not sure which material to take. Maybe 1mm Balsa so i can encarve the planks and so on.

Re: VIIC 1:45 modell

Aft section with inlet build in. What is really cool is that the opening of the aft inlet do fall in line with the frames of the hull. Same should happen for the front body section. Adds some visual spice for close up looking. First sketch of the deck loosely attached to clarify sectioning and fix p...

Re: DO215 originated by Cesare Milani

Personally i prefer +X,+Y,+Z .... -Z viewing directions. But that's only me, who had been conditioned to ...

Re: DO215 originated by Cesare Milani

it seems you've swapped the axis Y and Z hm, not sure what you mean. The front and bottom of the bottomkeel is the x=0;y=0;z=0 position (as is x=0;y=0 in the 2D side view). So any part can be placed with absolute dimensions regarding to that point in the 2D drawing. When drawing a fuselage frame yo...

Re: VIIC 1:45 modell

Just a short note on epoxying the nylon hull. You would want to support the nylons by a layer of paper or similar with a closed surface. Squeeze out the extra resin with a soft scraper (balsa or such). Otherwise you put too much resin on and it will not fill all the small gaps in the nylon. Other th...

Re: DO215 originated by Cesare Milani

Same working procedure as with the VIIC. I do the drawing in a 2D CAD program and import the parts into FC. In the 2D CAD make sure that all parts have a good x=0;y=0 coordinate so that in FC you can do the positioning with absolute coordinates. Note that DXF parts are imported into the XY plane. Ro...
