Did you print the 3d bezels yourself? I am building a Baron 58 cockpit and am just starting on the dash.November 14, 2017 at 9:56 am #3100
i printed them myself, on a Wanhao i3 plus,
and in the bezels mounted a transparant plexy disk that I made on my home made cnc machine, but this cnc broke down, so can not use it anymore.
the gauges are from airmanager, I like them, but the monitors that run them are very old 15″ 4/3 monitors, and the image quality is poor,
not part of your question, and of topic, but in the mean time desided to,move the pit, the room is so small , it is very difficult to sit comfy , hardly place for the pc’s.
also the visual system with 100″ projector screen and 42″ tv’s is very hard to get right, it looks distorted.
so planning forca curved screen and 3 beamer setup, in a yet to be made simroom .
I love the dash, but far more complicated to build I guess, unless you go the path of all touchscreens?November 14, 2017 at 2:34 pm #3101AlanParticipant
Yeah, a touch panel would be nice to have. I originally thought about making a modern baron 58 with a g1000 and a garmin 750. It would be much easier to setup but I want to use my sim for training for a baron 58 that the company I work for leases. I’ll make a post about my panel as soon as I get a little further on the project. For now I am working on the audio, radio, garmin 530, transponder, and autopilot panels. I am using balsa wood to make for forms as I don’t have access to a 3d printer. Once I get the form for each one I will cut the holes for buttons, lights and encoders and get them wired up via arduino. Project for this week is making my audio panel.January 8, 2018 at 9:47 am #3421
