    Cockpit Cessna 172 where I can found parts for printer 3d

    Hi everybody, I would like build a cessna 172's cockpit to use with x-plane 10.x.
    After have searched for articles, tutorials and generals helps, I have an idea on how i must do it.
    I will use my saitek yoke, pedal, trim, radio and switch panel; I will use, also, Air Manager and a monitor 22" for the flight struments and engine struments; For the encoders and buttons I will use the Ardsim.
    Since I have a 3d printer, I thought to print the frames of the instruments, the knobs and levers needed for the project.
    Some of you know where I could find them?
    I searched oh Thingiverse site but I don't found nothing.
    Hello and thanks

    Anyway, there is:

    Thanks Horacio for your help.
    For the moment I'm undecided if build a cockpit for Cessna 172 or for the Bonanza F33A (I use often that of Carenado that I find very beautiful ).
    In any case I'm drawing some parts of the cockpit for print them with my Iprusa and as soon as I finished it I will share them with you with pleasure.
    Do you know where I can found the "cardboard gauges"?
    Thanks and bye bye

    Re: Cockpit Cessna 172 where I can found parts for printer 3d

    Hi everybody,
    My project to build the cockpit of the Cessna 172 goes on and, after programming the Arduino Mega cards one for buttons and switches, one for the throttles and aone for the knobs for the instruments, I am going to build the annunciator panel. Inspired by an idea of Tom_G_2010 I will build, with the printer 3d, the frame where to insert the LEDS (see the post n. #8 of this thread: http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/show...ht=annunciator) but I dont know how I will make the writings that will light up, you have any idea for me?
    which is the fonts that I must use for the writtens?
    How and where I must print the written (normal paper, transparent sheets or other? )
    Hello and thanks
