DLT-19 3D Model

Recommended Posts

Hi Alan!<br>

I would love to get my hands on those files. Since I'm an industrial mechanic, I would like to build a metal DLT-19.<br>

But the whole world uses the metrical system. Can I use your files and modify them? I would change everything to mm.<br>

If it's possible, I could do some parts on CNC machines...<br>

Usually I'm using SolidWorks.

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.

Hello,

 

I am getting too old to switch over, only when I have too.

I'm closer to Detroit than I am to the rest of my country, I grew up with imperial units lol

 

Here is a little update, I had to see what the parts looked like on a barrel.

Please make a file for each part individually. It is easier to arrange the parts for printing.

 

I have a Printrbot 3D printer that I have upgraded to print 12"L X 4"W X 5"H. Future plans are to increase the width to 6" and height to 10".

 

Now I have another SW prop to add to the list for printing.

is the barrel in the newest download?

Via the first post

 

... The plan is to use 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" PVC pipe for the barrel ...

I saw that Al, however one of the pictures prior has a pretty nice looking barrel rendering in it.

Gotcha, just wanted to make sure.

even still I think you're right, using pvc pipe would be just as nice and might be a bit easier

Less clean up and it would be a pain to print all those sticks.

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.
