Ben Gimbert

Built an F18 cockpit mock up using 3d printed parts  with the Gigabot 3.0. Project took over a yr to complete. Materials I used were wood , aluminum , mild steel. The interior of the cockpit composed of switches Plexiglass and over 100 3d printed parts using the Gigabot. Over 120 hrs of CAD process brought the many shapes I designed for 3d printing. many hours of test fitting and re printing to get scale right so parts fit correctly. Otter cockpit was painted A Fighter weapon scheme such as Top Gun instructors fly. The whole cockpit was built on wheel castors for easy moving. This cockpit was built for Virtual Reality Air Combat training.
