    DLT-19 3D Model

    I haven't forgotten this project, life has bee throwing me more curveballs than normal. Lost my father on 9/19 and my uncle on 9/2. I am not exactly in the right frame of mind these days to be able to continue with this project right now. Alan

    DLT-19 3D Model

    Hello, decius - Do I need to change the resolution of the 3D models so they will print smoother? Just not up on the 3D printing stuff, classically trained ink and Mylar draftsman, old dog trying to learn new tricks. Sorry for the delay on updates, things are starting to settle down. A friend and mentor of 30 years passed away and put me in charge of his estate. So I have been busy trying to get everything organized, fighting with nearly everyone just to get the bills paid and accounts closed. Learning a lot about estate planning, trusts, probate the whole ball of wax. What I have learned is that ORGANIZTION pre & post is a must and that most of the people you’ll have to deal with are going to be jerks. Alan

    Thank you guys. I apologies for the lack of updates. Had a personal crisis that has taken a majority of my time. Not sure when I’ll be able to get back to this as I still have a few months of work to do before life can get back to some kind of normality. But I will finish it, I'll make sure to break it down the final model in to seperate parts. Alan

    Hello, I am getting too old to switch over, only when I have too. Here is a little update, I had to see what the parts looked like on a barrel. Alan

    They are 1 to 1 inch, convert to metric - scale up by 25.4 to get to mm Alan

    ComradeDave - No, not yet, I am still work on it, trying to get the numbers to work out. Alan

    Ripper_L - What format would work for you? I still have a long way to go. Since they are in AutoCAD they just need to scaled up X 25.4. AutoCAD make that easy. These drawings are not dimensional accurate to the real deal, I have only held on MG-34 once. They are designed to work with PVC pipe and are based just on photos and the few dimensions I could find. Since I was only considering these being printed in plastic, (sand to fit) I have not added any real world tolerances to the parts. So basically a force fit, so convert them to metal will need to take that in to account. Alan

    The rear sight has been roughed out, few tweaks left to go Alan

    Sorry I always work in inches haven't made the leap to the metric System. Alan

    The links have been updated in the first post. Comcast discontinued their hosting service, lost 15 years of online files so there are a lot of broken links I need to fix. Just sent me a note if you find one. Thanks Alan

    Ok figured it out, the first post has been updated with a link to the first batch of parts. As always liked to here what you all think. Post pics of your prints! Alan

    Ok I have finished tweaking and I'm getting ready to post these parts, figured I'd do it an batches so I can get feedback on their usability. So I need to know from all you 3D printer folks should the parts be put in to separate STL files or just lumped into one big file? Alan

    I am using AutoCAD 2012. In all my research I have never seen it as two pieces, but my thought is that two pieces would be easier to print, especially on the smaller hobby printers. Alan

    Here is an update. May not look like much, but there are more than a few hours of tweaking. The bi-pod mount (gray part) is surprisingly complex, at least for my feeble skills. Alan

    I promise they will get posted. I am still tweaking them. My CAD and 3D skills are a little rusty and I keep finding things I missed. The question I have is what format would be best STL or DXF? Alan
