    Boeing Looking for 777 Overhead files for CNC

    Hi all.

    Done a lot of research and a cardboard model as I am starting my 777 overhead build. I have two questions.

    1. I'm looking for 777 overhead files for CNC machine. I know they exist but haven't been able to find files and contact right people, it seems. Drawings would be major help. If someone knows this guy http://home.wanadoo.nl/norbert.bosch/index.html it would help as he has the files. His email given at the site isn't valid.

    2. Which cards do you suggest for my overhead build? I already have one Bodnars BU0836X card.

    Re: Looking for 777 Overhead files for CNC

    Hi Airbusjon,

    Strange name for a b777 builder :P

    Did you get the workbook from the http://www.project777.com/?mid=2012 from austria ?
    Its a great gift for us B777 builders I am into cnc myself for my 777 but the drawings need to be done yet but with this workbook it isnt that difficult.

    I bought myself an andruino mega to connect the hole overhead -- but running now with fsbus

    regards john

    It was few years back I chose that name, wasn't really building anything back then...

    Yeah really familiar with the Workbook, major help it is! So are you working on the overhead cnc files? I'm starting with korrys in a few days. Just need to figure out the cut out for the korrys in the panel...

    Btw. liked your Project facebook page, really cool!

    Re: Looking for 777 Overhead files for CNC

    Good to hear that you progress with the drawings.

    I'm going to do the korrey's DIY way using this guide http://home.hccnet.nl/jwopdenakker/building%20tip.html, just have to modify it a bit for the nightlighting LED's. 777 legends can be downloaded here: http://www.777simulator.nl/ But what I need to know is the width of the korry hole in the overhead panels! I assume you have the correct dimension, so would you like to tell it to me?

    Hi,
    I am using the same idea for the korry's and I am using 20 mm high and 19 mm wide.
    See the testplate of the 777 Cargo Fire, Engine Start and Ignition

    Looking good!
    Thank you for the dimnesions. So is it an 20mmx20mm acrylic bar that you use? That's the next material I'll need. I'm also building a prototype first.

    Re: Looking for 777 Overhead files for CNC

    I see. Did you get my PM? I'm sure I send it but isn't showing at send messages...

    Why are you using 20x19mm? 20x20mm would do the job? I'm ordering the acrylic bar anytime soon, I think I will buy the 20x19mm if I'm able to use your Overheadcnc files when they are ready?
