Ah man, a few days earlier and I could have helped you, I can always ask a friend of mine but that might take a few weeks before he gets a chance to measure it.
Not conveniently no…unfortunately…
I think the ribs need to be a little bigger.
This forum is magic.
You can be my @wingman1387, anytime! Thanks!
Did you pull @wingman1387 out from a hat…?
In my experience the throttle isn’t so tapered, it’s basically a cylinder. Though I haven’t see all models.
With the amazing stuff you’ve been building @Troll, “No, you can be mine.”
Anyway, one of the photos didn’t attach
Like @Andrew116 said it’s more cylindrical with a roundish end and a slight tapering.
I think troll has got the tapering down to be honest. Might be a bit off but not much.
The CAD 3D view doesn’t show the perspective. The taper is only 10%. But I think the taper perhaps should be slightly curved…? I’ll draw up a test…
This doesn’t look better to me, although I don’t have much of a comparison with the real thing.
The “customer” is satisfied. Mission complete.
Thanks for the input and help!
Would you be so kind to share your 3D models of Cessna knobs?
I am building DIY TPM controls and would be very happy to 3D print your knobs for my project.
Sure! Happy to!
Thanks for instant response! I am still waiting for controller from UK, once put everything together I’ll update the pics
