Pacificmeister Build Info and CAD Sources


#491

Hi Leland, I don’t have plans for a meetup here right now. Builders are spread thin all around the globe so best to connect and discuss topics here on the forum for now. But something to keep in mind for the future as we grow this community. Keep us posted on your build.

Hi Giloris - Just building my drive pod now and reviewing all postings for tips. I have the exact same concern about the very heavy drive pod only being supported by the mast clamp at the front. Did you find this was OK?


#495

Hi it seems that masterclamp not support heavy tube with every parts .

I find a new pièce but i dont test it . It seems more solid

Regards
Giloris

Thank you to @Yinnon_Haviv for sharing the version without silicon @pacificmeister … I will order the PG7 and cous made a return after test and waterproof …

Hi Yinnon_Haviv

What kind of screw do you use to fix your mastclampto thé aluminium tube ?

Giloris

Has anyone used a Reisenauer Gearbox on @pacificmeister build?


#499

Not too sure, but it would work just as well I would think.


#500

@Alexandre uses a different motor but his unit is otherwise pretty similar I think. With the Reisenauer you can skip the 3D printed part that mounts the motor to the gearbox, but you need to find a flange from Reisenauer instead that fits the motor.


#501

Hi Good work !
Could you Say me your mast width ?
Regards
Giloris


#502

I actually had to take a file and file all the threads on the motor mount and it fits perfect now I also had to sand the threads down too.


#503

sorry for the late response, the mast measures 110 mm
I have the stl files if you want.


#504

Hi
Mine is 124mm. How de you do to modify masterclamp parts ?
Regards
Giloris


#505

I take a picture of my mast and I 'm embedding 360 canvas tab then I caliber the photo has the right dimention and fits the shape mast clamp.

@pacificmeister did a video tutorial

@pacificmeister It seems rev3 .stl listed files are out of scale. They are tremendously large parts, Am I missing something?


#507

Hi @samisin, from what I understand STL files contain no scale and the units are arbitrary (see Wikipedia). My scale in Fusion is set to mm in this project. Seems like some programs assume cm and then you will see it 10x bigger than the actual size. Just scale down by 10. Hope that helps.


#508

yep, I figured it out and sxported stl file with cm. thanks


#509

Strong, hollow and cheap, at 59€ mast only (65cm) and 399€ for the complete foil setup with 1200sqcm Surf/Sup wing, this mast is very interesting for our use …
