We are pleased to announce that the Heritage Flight Simulation Shapeways Shop is up and running. Here you can purchase all the 203 components for inclusion in your HFS Spitfire Mk.IX Cockpit Simulator build. The total price of the components comes to US$3945.
They are printed in white SLS Nylon. We have found we can get a better result using acrylic model paints as opposed to the (expensive) Shapeways die colouring method.

Would you be able to buy a pack with STL files ?
Thank you for your question. There are two reasons for us not making available the STL files:
1. It is important from quality and operational point of view that the accuracy of the parts is maintained. This is only achievable with an SLS or better printing process.
2. Due to the IP tied up in creating this design over two and a half years, I regret that it is the only manner in which we can protect that IP. Sure, you could reverse engineer the parts, however you would be better off simply designing them yourself in the first place.
Brilliant,wonderful catalogue of parts.Congratulations!!! such quality and patience.The 3D option is outstanding, will be ordering early in 2020.
Many thanks for your kind words and support Peter! Regards, Roel.
