Rafale single canopy vacuum forming tool .stl


Categories: ,


Please note THIS IS NOT A CLEAR CANOPY – it is a tool or ‘Buck’ to make a canopy.

This is made in two pieces to help fit on the average 3d printer.  It should be glued together (keyed first) with Superglue Gel.  Two .stl files are provided.

Designed to sit flat on a vacuum forming bed.   Print with 3 Layer wall and 4% infill.

Cut a large hole in the base, and remove the infill matrix.

Fill completely with plaster of paris.  60g of water to 100g Plaster.   Most canopy tools take about 4-500g of plaster.  Allow several days to dry – left with the belly up.

Once set, sand the 3d printed surface smooth using finer and finer grades of Wet n Dry paper – use Automotive filler primer aerosol to help get a good surface.

Polish with a rubbing compound such as T-Cut, then buff with a cloth and water to get a polished finish.
