The days are getting longer and I suddenly have the urge to go flying. Unfortunately I cant find my winder. So what do i do? 3d print one ofcourse! I am a member of a makerspace at my college and they have half a dozen 3d printers. I heard of a few people printing this winder from Thingiverse so I decided to have a go at it also. At $2.20 an ounce for PLa plastic filament, this should be a pretty cheap project and a good learning opportunity also. After it is finished I plan to make one with a 20:1 ratio if it is possible. So far I have the drive and output gear printed. I actually have 2 output gears printed but wasn't happy with how they turned out. The black input gear was printed on a Printrbot Simple Metal printer and the red output gear was printed on a Tinkerine Ditto Pro. The red gear is only 3 thousandths out of round and the black gear is 7 thousandths out. Not to bad I dont think. Next week I will print the frame and handle.

Found this, thought I'd share the find.

Steve, are you putting me out of business? And I was just going out next week to buy 10 more counters.

My arms are so weak, it's like that pushup I did last year was a total waste.

Hahaha Hardly! Infact Im pretty excited that I found my chain and sprockets I bought a couple years ago for a cgw. This winder is being printed from pla and it has a low melting temperature so I would imagine on a hot day out in the sun things may get a little wonky. I should have used white pla instead of black. Mike that is the exact model Im printing.

Hello!

I'm both new to the forum and to free flight. I've been an RC flyer on and off for a good while and our club (UK) runs two indoor flying sessions a month.

Over time, a few of us have started flying rubber power and I've followed on building a BMFA Gymmnie Cricket which works pretty well.

Anyway, I'm also into 3D printing and have made one of those printed winders. I had to make a lot of changes to the design as I couldn't get some of the parts needed easily.

In the end, it works nicely if more bulky and noisy than a commercial one.

Good flying
