Does anyone have a 3D model of a Bixler or Bixler-like airframe? Or maybe just the front of the fuselage?
I wand to model some Add-ons for it like maybe a Go-Pro holder and other snap in accessories for my planes and them have them printed or laser cut. I intend to make them form myself but I would happily share the designes if others wanted the add-on too.
I checked file export formats and seems that we are able to open Max/Maya files in Solidworks at least .iges format or .stl. Does your program allow designing as solid model or it it surface model?
I checked Solidworks forum topics and there were one advertisement for bidirectional converter. I paste it here just in case if it is needed later.
I will check for some exporter plugins for that format, And I will also include multiple formats in a zip file and you can have a play out and see what will import =]
It can do both, however I do like my solid polygons. specially for saving memory!
I will more than likely stick to this method as I am still a bit rusty at Surface modeling
Hello for a long time.
Are here someone still interested in for pocket camera camera mount for Bixler? I have done some versions without 3D model for Olympus Tough TG-320. Currently camera is static facing front or side but mount version 2 with PAN function is almost ready. Plane and some images could be seen at my friend blog: http://jari.vehmaa.com/rc2013.htm. Scroll all the way to 13.3 and you'll see it.
On version 3 camera stands on reinforced servo. This version is designed with Solidworks. Version 1 you see in image is scanned before assembly if someone like to use it.
If someone is interested to participate, please let me know.
I made one.
It doesn't give details to the internals, but the outside should be very accurate
Nice one Chris!
Got that busy with work haven't had chance to finish it!
