would it be possible to get all the components of this in stl format? it would be easier to import into sketchup for us that use it. It would take me hours to seperate all tthe components in the APM_Bixler_Mount.stl file using sketchup due to all the lines it creates while importing.
Sorry, I didn't see your comment until just now.I've added stl files of the individual parts. Hope that will help. Let me know if there's anything else you need!
would this work with apm 2.6
I don't have an apm 2.6 so I couldn't tell you.Sorry
Great design, can you upload a .stp file so I can make modificaitons to fit my own electronics?
Sorry for the delay. Busy weekend.

Anyways, I have uploaded stp files. Let me know if they work for you.

Best of luck with your modifications!
This is fantastic! I want to make something very similar, but with a FPV camera mount. What CAD software did you use? Do you think it would be easy for me to modify using Sketchup?
I used SolidEdge student version. So unfortunately I wouldn't be too much help on the Sketchup front. I'm fairly certain you can get plugins for Sketchup though that will import and export STL files. If there's a more common cad format like stp or something that sketchup can use, I can export it as that for you if you would like. Good luck!
Thanks for the reply. What units did you use for design? Millimeters?
Np. Yes, millimeters.
I was thinking about designing something like this for my APM1.4 but putting it in the fuselage of my Bixler. It looks way better in the cockpit! Now it looks like I'll be saving up some money for a 3D printer and upgrading to an APM2.5. Great work!
It's stuff like this that gave me reason enough to build my 3D printer. This is what 3D printing is all about. Make anything. This is great, thank you.
You are very welcome :)
