Print and launch your own model rocket. I used old plans from WWII, Fusion 360, Taulman Alloy 910, and Estes 13mm Rocket Engines to create a working and flying model rocket (see video for flight). Since 910 is nylon based, you can dye it easily with Rit Dye More. However, you can certainly use different filaments. I'm not sure how PLA would handle the heat though (if you make one from PLA or any other material post a make with post-flight pics).
DONT FORGET TO ADD A BIT OF MODELING CLAY TO THE NOSECONE FOR A STABLE FLIGHT.
What you will need:
3D Printer with at least 140 mm on the Z-axis
Filament with some heat resist (I used Alloy 910, worked great)
Kevlar Cord (shock cord, 100lb test 0.8mm often used for kites etc, super heat resistant)
Modeling Clay (to add weight to nose cone for stable flight)
Bag to make parachute or streamer
Labels (reinforce parachute attach)
Hole Punch (punch shroud cord holes in parachute, through the labels)
String for parachute shrouds (I used small Spectra fishing line)
Estes Mini Engines (13mm size)
Rit Dye More (OPTIONAL, if you use a nylon filament)
I had fun with this, but I make no warranty. Always follow safe rocketry procedures.
Enjoy and use at your own risk!
PS Please post a make or a remix if you use it. I've included source files.
Flip the rocket so fins are facing up. Add a brim to make sure the rings don't come loose during print. I would probably just print all 4 nose cone sizes because they are only a few grams of plastic each... having a light nose cone fit is very important to deploying the recovery system.
