Estes factory parts


I modeled this before final assembly of my replacement LES tower frame. I'd happily keep buying the plastic replacement parts, but the shipping charge is brutal for such a lightweight part.

I don't know how to print this. Maybe as my skills improve, and the technology does also. Maybe someone with a resin printer can do one for me.

The model is mostly accurate, I believe. I measured my factory parts with a digital caliper, and tried to model faithfully. I think the attachment point for the top struts might be .5mm low, but otherwise, I think I got it pretty good.

Modeled in Lightwave 15.something, the mesh isn't perfect. If you'd like, feel free to do a better job.
