This beast is one of a generation of rockets. Over the past 4 months ive developed from scratch up to this point. Now I am inviting you! Other makers, designers and engineers to improve this any way you want.
I used some parachutes from amazon toy soldiers but any cut parachute from a bin bag should work aswell.
The holes are designed for 1mm elastic string but change this to whatever you need.
This rocket in theory could achive about 300m in altitude according to open rocket. Design the fins according to the motor you are using and request a fin for a motor and ill see if i can design one. I will be updating this constantly and it needs some fixes to start with.
Need any help just ask!
Support are needed for some areas such as the launch lug to hold it to the launchpad but and supports can help the nose cone and internals print well. So i recommend using them.
Everything else is up to you but i recommend having walls set to r 0.8mm (2 perimeters) as the walls are 0.6mm. This squishes the walls together making it sturdy.
Parachute pusher and engine mount I print in Nylon as it withstands heat and has less friction.
Drill small 1mm ish hole into parachute pusher.
I forgot to design this into the model but it will be fixed soon!
This is for the 1mm elastic string to stop the parachute and pusher flying away after ejection!
Fit engine mount and slide fins in
Fins if printed correctly should be relatively tight in the mount.
The fins hold the engine in place but if they feel loose maybe use tape. Fins might come of at landing but wont snap and are easy to reattach.
Paint if you wish!
Paint will add weight but it will look much nicer!
I don't paint mine as I can't paint for crap but I don't mind.
