Hey marv

if you get a chance, can you post pics of where the main and aux connect to each other ? it doesn't look like a strait line.

The picture I posted was a top view.  What did you want to see, the side view (from inside looking out)?

Hi Marv, It's a teaser allright, but it helps :)
As the trainer pix in the other thread, those are the ones I took my dimensions from.

If you could give the following dims, that would be great, but no rush, just whenever and if you have the time.


It would also be helpfull to get a picture from the inside (as if you'd go against the wall without moving the part) That would help in seeing how the DZus rail are attached and how the side console is attached to the AUX
I see the bolt on the right there, but I wonder how it goes around the side stick hole?

Thanks for your help

Sure thing.  It may take a few days since I have some things going on, but I would be happy to help.

what i meant was the seam between the main and aux, it doesn't look like they are conncted in a strait line where the angle is.....

Ido,

I don't know if that is the info you're looking at  but here's a picture of the right aux panel:



As you can see, it's not a straight line at all. The aux is connected to the side console on the stick base (probably with the 2 small tabs) and on the bolt at the right edge of the aux.

The middle is the panel hole.
I'm not sure it was the info you were after, I hope it helps

Damn, you guys got me started again. Here's some work on the right panel:

Edit: photo removed, see below

Red Dog or Marv, one question:
I guess the Dzus rail the Sensor power goes on is one piece, right? If so is it bolted onto the aux panel too? I see two holes on the right side in RD's photo so I guess that is the case.

RD, most of these dims can be calculated by counting holes on the Dzus rail and multiplying by 9.53mm. I'll measure them for you when I get to this point.

I guess so as well, but I'm not sure. the picture Marv will take will probably help. There are also 4 of those small holes along the inside of the side stick part of AUx - probably to attach the Dzus rail as well

Nice drawings you have there and roger on counting the Dzus :)

Oryx1,

Well, what can we say?
All the info is available on the board. all you have to do is read it and search for the relevant info.

Nobody will build your pit in Namibia at your place, you'll have to start working on your own. I don't understand what you need but you will need to decide first what you want to build and then ask specific questions instead of requesting stencils :)
Killn will have stencils for sale but he's not ready yet - so you'll have to be patient

Here you go:

Red Dog's pit - I finally started

Edit: I compressed it too much :oops: . The numbers are:
146.5, 305, 209.2, 228.2 (mm of course). Measured from panel edge to panel edge.
I'm missing three of the dims you asked for. The smaler one is ~80mm, because the Zeroize panel is 75,60mm.

You can easily calculate this with these quidelines:
Dzus to Dzus:136.3mm
Maximum panel length: 146,82mm (if the panels where touching. Normaly ~146,5)
Width: multiples of 9,53mm (as above normaly ~.3-.4mm smaller). The studs on most panels are 1,5 hole from the edge (1.5*9.53 - .15 to .2mm)

I've made an ipart factory in Inventor (kind of like a parametric template). I input # of Dzus holes and it spits out panels  8)  
The same with Dzus T and L rails.

I have a request too: can you give me the cutout dimensions for the round instruments? Hole diameter and distance between screw holes?

Nikolas
