Not enough Deuce's Wild in the Universe was created by curtisheisey
In my opinion there are not enough Deuce's Wild rockets in the universe. To help rectify this problem, I have created an Onshape CAD tool generating script that one can create high power deuces wild bulkheads, just by entering the parameters

The script is here. cad.onshape.com/documents/8dba761eefd21c...6e5ccf40a35466d1daa5 You have to have an Onshape account to use it. You enter body tube dimensions, and motor tube dimensions, and it creates the part, that you can have 3d printed

I am prototyping the first design from this, a 2x24mm motor design.


Some pictures of the prototype are shown.

LMK how it goes. You have to figure out how to install featurescript functions. There is a "FF" in the top menu bar, and then you can add "Decues Wild Bulkhead Generator". Once you have it added, drag it over to the left "Features" area. Click on it and fill out the parameters.

TODO is to do the top and bottom bulkhead in concert, and then have it compute the triangle dimensions and auto create that part.

I also have NC generator. cad.onshape.com/documents/726aaae0463bac...f2444c774fa90c010d32 Search for featurescript "NC Generator
"

This is fantastic! Do you think you could adapt your deuces MMT generator for a tres? If it's too much of a pain, don't worry about it. I just want to upscale my canted 3-motor booster to BT80, and I'd love to print the parts.

Never mind. I thought this was done in openSCAD, so I hoped it might be easy to change the math from 2 to 3.

I just looked at your onshape file. Beautiful work!

Thanks, yes, OnShape featurescript.

Ha, should inspire you to do it in OpenSCAD.
