Hello everyone, and happy new year!

I spent some time of my holidays working on the eyebrows. I designed them to be 3D printable.

I just did a small mistake: I thought that the eyebrows were push buttons, I did the design thinking that way, I only realized later that only the Master Caution was a push button...In fact the design was not too disruptive for non push-able device. I just had to add a nut to prevent the push.

I used Hispapanels F-16 Jay-EL Labels (http://hispapanels.com/tienda/en/f-16/200-f-16-labels.html) for the display.

You can see the result once lighted, I still have to do some finishing on the surrounding of the jay-El label to prevent the light to be seen around the shape, working on that right now.

I'll share the STL file of course, once I will be done with the master caution.

Cheers

That is very cool!  I saw a multi LED switch posted on Thingiverse http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:616665 but it is much bigger than the JAY-EL switches in the F-16.  I tried to scale it down without much luck.  Your design looks very promising.

I'm done with the Master Caution. I created a zip containing the stl files of the eyebrows, button case and Master Caution button and case.

I used those type of switch for the design:

and those type of screws and accessories to make the button workable:

I used a basic plastic sheet to do the testing, it will not be the final display (where it's written "Master Cauton"

Hello everyone, long time I haven't updated this topic, a lot of things happended during those last months...

I signed up in a Fablab that is using a huge wood CNC and a big laser cutting/engraving machine. I got the Sy plans and was able to use those on the CNC. Originally, I did not want to rebuild the whole case, but you know...no will  :-P. I also used the laser cutting/engraving machine to build the panels. I used two transparent sheets and a translucent white panel to be able to backlight the panels.

I received some parts as well. I got Bio's knobs that are just amazing! Redneck Caution panel, Kukki's HUD glass and ICP front, Albert's HSI Bezel and some anti g suit components from Faan. Received my PoKeys and Arduinos as well. With the different screens that will go behing the instruments, I almost have everything to build the beast, I'm just looking for free time now, so if anybody got some, let me know  :lol:.

Continuing on the 3D printed parts, I designed a box for the DED Oled screen, because I picked the one with the pins on the right side, that make it impossible to put in the usually advised one (from electronics shop). I also designed it to attach the Arduino (Uno, Due or Mega) inside, to be used with DEDuino project.
I also 3D printed the ejection handle, with flex filament, quite happy with the result!

Next steps:
- Continue the case assembly
- Build up the center console, have the ICP and MFD working. Work also on the gauges (still not sure if I'm going to use the Arduino/X27 solution or the Pokeys/Polulu/Servo solution)
- Build the panels with knobs

Cheers,

Diab
