Parts for model yacht

Postby Andy Maker » Tue Jun 25, 2019 4:43 pm

How's it going folks? I am new to FreeCAD but having a lot of fun with it to design parts for 3D printing. Here is an example of a mounting to hold a loop of stainless steel wire.

May as well share the CAD file for the servo arm assembly. I tried to create a semi-waterproof interface from a connecting shaft from below deck. The printed part is in the above photo.

The winch wheel was easy. I subtracted a torus from a cylinder.
