F/A-18C instrument lighting panel knobs


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm working on building a F/A-18C instrument lighting panel for myself. I'm having trouble finding 3D files (CAD/STL) for the lighting knobs:

Does anyone know where I can find those? Thanks!!

On my shapeways site if you don't have a 3d printer https://www.shapeways.com/shops/a-10c-warthog-supplies

 

Thanks Deadman! I do have a 3D printer but if I can't get the results I want this is a good backup source.

I have a bunch of Hornet STL files available, including the lighting knobs at my GitHub site. From the front page, go to STL Files --> Knobs. I think the ones you're looking for are named "...Quad," "...Triple," and "...Flat Sides." All are designed to fit 18-spline 6mm potentiometer shafts.

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for, THANK YOU!! I'm enjoying checking out your project too. Nice work! I wish I would have found your site earlier before I had to learn about editing the .lua joystick files to work with ON-OFF switches. I like how you maintain the joystick edits in a separate file. A lot of good information you posted that I plan to read through. Thanks again!!

Happy to help, glad you found it useful! Let me know if you have any questions as you build your pit--there's a lot to figure out as you go through this.

I found your knobs on Thingiverse this morning.  Thanks!

 

They work on my Winwing panel, printed in PLA from an Ender3.

 

I do have to drill them out to get them to fit over the switch handles though.  I really wanted this to help identify switches when in VR.  I plan on mapping everything but the lighting knobs and the ground power panel as close to the real cockpit as possible.

 

That said, do you have a plain rounded handle similar to a switch without a handle?  I ask so that there could be a 3d printed handle on every switch, even those that wouldn't feel much difference in shape.  At least that way I could have the same physical material feel on every switch.
