Hello All. My project got to the point where I think it's time for its own thread.

This will be known as the “Veepy Jetpack model” from now on....

***RELEASE DATE DEC 25 2020***

Objective:

Create a highly detailed and accurate 3D printable file for The Rocketeer Cirrus X3 Jetpack.

Requirements I set:
  • MUST BE ACCURATE
  • Must take into account original dimensions, down to the millimeter accuracy.
  • Must be 3D printable at home, hence, must be split into multiple parts.
  • Parts must join together seamlessly.
  • Lip and Groove joints wherever possible.
  • Alignment notches wherever possible ensure proper positioning on assembly.
  • Rivet holes, so its easier to sand, and real rivets can be put in place.
  • Flaps must be fold-able, with proper clearance.
  • Magnet pockets in cones for easy cone removal and access to internals.
  • Assembly features to attach real hardware for assembly (holes, pockets, etc.)
Status November 2020:
All files have been finished and tested. Project is now COMPLETE. Release date is Dec 25, 2020.
Assembly manual completed Dec 2, 2020:

The largest piece measures approximately 7in x 7in x 8 in.

I think the best approach would be print largest pieces in a rough large format printer, and the smaller pieces in a detailed high quality unit.

Any plans to model things like the hand control/trigger and helmet?
I know there are various helmets floating around out there but they all seem to vary a bit in terms of accuracy
