Postby 4D2D » Wed Mar 29, 2017 12:05 am

Dinky 986 Mighty Antar Low Loader & Propeller. Can anyone help please ?. Someone with the original model would be a great help. I'm working on an other 3D project and need to know the prop and plinth sizes from the original items... Picture attached. If anyone can help sizes in mm please.

If no one has the Prop and Plinth and just the low loader, then the size of the platform as shown in the picture would be of great help

Chris as promised here's the finished item so far. I know the top of the prop is slightly different from the original but this is an on going project and will improve at a later stage.
Thanks again for your help.
Thank you again Bob.

Hi Bob,

the parts look good.
Do you have your own printer?

Thanks Chris and Stephen..
Stephen yes I have my own 3d printer it's a lot of fun. It takes quite a while to get into. Learning the different cad software I find
difficult at times. I went for a good quality printer as this makes a big difference with the finished article. The one I went for
was the Prusa i3 MK2 if you google it the printer will come up. This I found for the quality and the price this machine takes quite a bit beating
amazing printer and user friendly....

Thanks again Chris for the measurements.

Hi Bob,

thanks for the info about the printer.
I´m still thinking about buying one or not because it always takes quite a long time when I order parts at Shapeways.
