3D Files for Field Pack - 3D Printing

Hello all, give me a few days and I will share my digitally scanned model of the Sonix/Northstar, it’s as accurate as one could ever hope for without having an original radio.  I’ve broken it down into easier to print pieces. I also made the main box with hex head anchor points and a hollow back to save weight.

Cheers,

Hollywood

That print looks awesome! Are you still planning to share the files?

Yes, I am still planning to share it, I just need to make a modification to add a built in watermark on the non visible side, because sadly it appears someone is passing the model off as their own and selling it. 
My model is free, and always will be for our community, but I’m not happy about people charging others for it :-(

At least if it has a watermark, it will be obvious the original model was mine.

I will upload it this week, along with a few other models, including a radar dish mount and a bottle model (for the two backpack bottles).

 

Cheers,

Right, I've added the watermarks, and the .STL files are for all MEPD users to enjoy. My only request is if you do print them for your builds, you mention its the DKK version :-)

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/18XEirIOF7_ko5r1ddABS2FAke36J-P0z?usp=sharing

All the parts for the radio, plus a bottle and bottle neck that allows for a captive nut, so it can be screwed in, and finally, a Radar Dish mount for the 15cm/5inch Dish (the 800 Lid, not the 874)

 

Any questions, feel free to ask.

 

Cheers,

Added the smaller Radar Dish backing plate (for the Tupperware 874 Lid..approx 110mm across ). The files above have the Radar Dish Backing Plate for the 800 Tupperware Lid (approx 150mm diameter). There seems to be some conversation around which one is correct... I personally, from my research think they used both. Both backing plates are built with a 70mm Diameter Tube in mind.

The Pack looks good. But the greyblue looks like light blue to me?

Its Humbrol 47, the lighting makes it look a little bluer in the photo than in reality. I thought if I went with the model paint used on set, I could not go wrong?

It looks very blue. Battleship-grey is not so light or RAL 7031

Fixed the colour.

Quick photo of the final result on the radio I uploaded above.

Thank you so much for offering this up to MEPD! It's a beautiful design. I printed mine, but am missing parts.

I am not seeing the strap attachments in the files, but I see those on your finished model. 

Are the strap attachments missing from the files?

Hi Don,

My apologies, looks like I didn't upload the the part! Give me a few days to access my laptop which is currently offsite, and I will upload and let you know when they are there.

Would love to see some photos of your prints and how they turned out.

Enjoy,

DKK

Ok, the Strap Bracket is now in the grouped files on the google drive, and I've also attached it here.

Cheers,

Thank you! I'll create a post once I have more printed. It's a really nice accurate design.

You wouldn't happen to have the STL for the feet and the antenna would you?

Just finished printing all these off. Firstly a huge thankyou to the designers for their time and opening them up to us all.

Quick question: My pack was built by RS propmasters and the models as scaled currently do not match with the exception of the sonix radio. Have these models been scaled to match another vendors parts? Is there an official scale?

Did I not include them? My apologies if I didn’t. I will check tomorrow and address that oversight!

The feet and ‘strap’ are one part, with the end of the strap warmed up a bit to give it a curve, like leather.

The Sonix Radio I scanned and designed is 1:1 from the original, and the lower bottle and captive neck are as close as I can get without having an original to compare.

Thanks bud, we had a fairly large con in England at the weekend with a selection of troopers packs from different vendors and we compared the parts against what we wear. The only two bits we needed to scale up were the gio canteen and the radar dish to add a little more depth and about 3-4mm diameter. The canteen i printed in three pieces with the 'fuzzy' setting turned on in prusaslicer to get that mottled effect which worked nicely

I think the RS one is a little too big on some parts. Especially the bottles and lids.

Your screw top lid was a very welcome addition too. Having the freedom to put a bolt/rod through as well is handy
