Default Ever wanted to try a 3D printed plane? Here's a free one.
















36" Wingspan Pseudo Cuda/Dart Clone.

Takes about 40ish hours to print, and maybe only a couple to build. All parts fit on standard 3d printer bed sizes of 200x200. Think the tallest part I have is 170mm.


You can get all the files and instructions needed to print it here

That is a very cool looking plane.

I can't seem to get embedded video to work, dunno if it's not working on the forum, or if there's some non-standard trick to it.

Got a better video of the newest rendition printed with PETG plastic anyway.



Try clicking the link here:

PETG is pretty awesome. Essentially it's 2 liter coke bottle plastic. Quite durable and temperature resistant. It's more flexible than the typical PLA used for planes though, so the model needs to be designed to use it.

If it is available via web link that is the best way to do it. Have never tried embedded code.

Yup, that did it thanks.

Looks like you just added the postfix of the url to make it work. Never seen it work that way on BB code before.

So here's what my youtube link looks like, and what the code should be underneath for anyone else who was wondering.

You got it ...

You can use the tab in the menu bar ... but to be honest I find it easier to type my hyper links ...

For vids its the sixteen character video identifier contained between ... youtube /youtube surrounding by the [ ] brackets.

For hosted photos such as with Photobucket, instead of youtube - you use img /img ..... but here the full hyper link address goes in.

Yes WF does have a strange way with vids .. but its not the worst I use ! Proboards where there are a number of forums I moderate has a system that a nutty professor must have devised !!

Yeah, now that I have this flying so nicely I'm attempted to make the klingon ship. Don't think the bird of prey had vertical stabilizers, but they could probably be adapted somehow to the rest of the look.

Yeup, bro, I think I saw a couple of e-flight enterprise foamies also. Your bird also reminds me of a high teck fighter I saw on popular science mag back in 2000 or 1999, it was called the switch blade, the wings popped out reverse like you cool model. Dunno if it ever made it to production?
