ZDENDIG - User Introduction
« on: April 09, 2022, 06:22:44 PM »
Heya, so I should propably introduce myself, so here we go!
My name Is ZDENDIG, I'm a 15 year old student from Czech Republic.
Im focusing on building my F16C pit, tho I'm on a tight budget and almost everything in the pit is going to made by me, still I'm not planning to give up in the nearest future.

I do a lot of CAD and 3D printing.
Have a good rest of the day!

Welcome to the forum!

Many of our builders cannot afford to buy real parts, or even good replica parts-
so they use their ingenuity to build their cockpits from scratch, using common materials.

I would encourage you to read some of these scratch built threads, like Salaxi54 & Snoopy:

https://www.viperpits.org/smf/index.php?topic=8170.msg107983#msg107983

https://www.viperpits.org/smf/index.php?topic=11687.msg176794#msg176794

Save your money for a good computer graphics card and display (which are difficult to "make" from scratch)

AH, good to finally see you here Z!  I'll share with everyone that Z is my CAD guru. He's been instrumental in designing the modular HUD that I want to print for my pit which I'm trying to make a functional one.  He's a great guy and if he asks for any help, I would urge all to offer him the best of what you know. Welcome to Viperpits, Zdendig!

Welcome here!

The best help I had was reading through the built threads and specially looking very carefully at all pictures. There is loads of information on this site. Even after years I keep discovering new things that were hidden for ages.  :lol:

You don't need lots of money to built a pit. Skills will do too.

Welcome
I think that with your skills in CAD and 3D printing you are far ahead of many of us. Drawing in CAD was always stopping me in my progress but with the help of the community, anything is achievable.
