Default STL files for RV-10

I was wondering if anyone in the community had an STL or 3d file for the RV-10, or the series for that matter?

I have a new 3d printer :-) and want to do something "important"

Default Printer Type

I got a Prusa i3 Mk3, and basically, it is brilliant.

Well sorted, and good community of users.... bit like Vans.

Support is good and it is kit or factory built and continuous improvement program of works.

Still after that RV-10 Cad file though, any suppliers??? :-)

Van's have CAD solid models on their web site for the instrument panels and adjacent sub panels for all their products except the RV-12. I guess they excluded the 12 because it's available in a "certified" version. You will need software that can deal with .IGES or .STEP files to use them.

For obvious proprietary reasons they do not provide dimensional acculturate CAD files for anything else.

Also not for the RV-3B, although you made me check.

Default STL Files?

Guys,

I just got my fist printer a few weeks ago and have printed a few useful items that i use in the shop. This morning i decided to print a 91.4 degree angle block used to set the elevator push tube length on the RV10. It is another one of those things that could be done a 100 other ways and most of them would be quicker than the 3D print but it is still more practical than printing a trinket. I am always looking for something practical to develop my CAD skills.

My first really good print was a set of brackets that slide over the 3/4" shelving in the shop. The new brackets hold the plans so they don't lay on the work bench.

So, how do I share this STL file with anyone? I don't do Dropbox, and emails sounds like a pain, especially if a file becomes popular. I guess my suggestion would be that I share files on one or more of the popular STL file sharing sites like Thingyverse.

Jim

I uploaded my oil cooler shroud to ThingiVerse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2955289 so that others would have access to it. Seems to work well.
