Model rocket Rockets
by JanM, published
a small rocket made to fit a rocket engine, type A10-3T. The fit turned out a liiittle tight, but i have now added .5mm to the diameter in the model-.stl. I printed it with 1% infill, but that probably isn't necessary. Also no extra skins. 0,5mm layer thickness. Turned out almost perfect.
I can change the model quite easy, if people have ideas for minor alterations.
The hole for the engine has a slot for those little metal spring thingies that holds the engine. the hole is deep enough for the entire engine, but i don't know exactly how i will put it to use... I'm not too much into the model rocket world, we are just doing model rockets as a fun start up for new students at our university. Also, this one is not made to split in the air. I have no idea what will happen when the engine blows :-)
The file Rocketparts.stl is a nose cone and a set of fins to put directly on a C-rocket engine. for me it fitted perfectly with just a few layers of scotch tape on one end. you can drill a little hole in the end of the engine (not the business end) to tie a string of some sort to attach the nose and whatever kind of "parachute" you can fit in there...
