STL files for Warthog/Virpil extensions


Recommended Posts

UPDATE: I have found that these have a tendency to crack at the male threads when printed with my default print settings (two side walls, 20% infill, 0.2mm layer height). I printed a "solid" one yesterday...5 side walls and 100% infill and will see how it holds up.

---------------------

Hi, folks,

 

In case anyone is interested, I have published STL files for various lengths of Warthog/Virpil extensions on my Hornet cockpit GitHub site.

 

This started because I was using a 75mm extension in my setup, but found I really needed a 50mm. I wasn't thrilled about spending >$50 (with shipping) and waiting until one was in stock from Virpil or another supplier, so I decided to design design my own, a few pictures below.

 

I did find that the 36.0mm female threads on the initial design were very tight (may be my printer), so I created versions with 36.5 and 37.0mm threads. This are indicated in the names of the files.

 

Let me know if you need other lengths...it's extremely easy to make others.

 

Thanks,

Eric

The female threads. I have made a couple of tweaks to the design since this was taken.

I have Virpil's 200mm extension, but the length and angle are not quite right. I wonder if you might be able to come up with a solution.

 

I could use one that's about 175mm, and has the bend at a sharper angle than Virpil's, to bring the stick grip closer to me.

 

Do you think that's possible? I have an Ender 3 but no knowledge on how to actually create models.

Good luck, and let me know how it works out!

 

See the update above about print settings and strength...I've had them crack when printed with 2x side walls and 20% infill.

Hmm...the curved extensions are much trickier. You can't have them screw directly onto the base because the alignment most likely won't be right. It requires a separate collar for tightening to allow you to align it. Not sure my skills are up for that, but if I figure anything out I'll PM you with the design info.
