Hi I have a model that requires some minor editing to have it become 3d printable. It is a model that is currently designed for rendering and is very detailed of the boeing 747-200. I want to make an rc plane out of it so would appreciate it if someone can help. I would like to know if someone can help with modifications creating the model into sections to it can be printed. Here is the link to the model seeking for help to have it edited to be printed on 3d printer.

Thank you for your help.

I am trying to make this into a 8 foot model

An 8ft RC plane 3D printed is going to be HUGELY expensive. This is, "I could buy a car for that!" territory. If it's also going to actually fly, not just be a tabletop operating demonstrator, there's going to have to be a lot of engineering figured out for assembly, configuration of controls, weights and balances, durability, etc. Are you sure about this?

Now this is a project I would be totally up for.

To get the model itself ready for 3D printing would need some major restructuring, but the restructuring could also incorporate all the necessary mounts for all of the various movings parts (aelerons, flaps, undercarriage etc) as well as incorporating some kind of crash protection structures (detachable wings, tailplane undercarriage).

As already mentioned the cost for the printed parts would be wuite high, but from the size of aircraft you mention, I'm pretty sure you know the expense involved.

I'll shoot you a PM.

Cheers,
Paul

I have always been fascinated by what i have seen in the youtube videos of largely scaled models that flies like the real thing. If I am not able to make it fly, at least I want to make it simulate like the real thing using moving mechanical parts like the winglets, wheels retracting, lights comes on, and etc... I am not sure why but ever since the first day I have flown in a plane that huge, I have always wanted a large scale model of it. I'm sure I can cut cost down here and there.

At, or near, minimum material thickness with strategically placed reinforcing ribs will be surprisingly strong. One of the joys of 3D printing is that you can have an open-sided honeycomb for these types of things.

(Honestly, if you ever looed at a real wing of that size you'd be astonished at how little material is used to hold hundrends of tons of aircraft, people, and cargo in thin air.

Regardless of my previous post, it IS doable. Pricey, but doable.
