3D model description

This is a bait boat, for carp fishing enthusiasts. This boat allows the removal of 2 lines and their baiting independently. A 6-channel transceiver is required. Improvements are to come to integrate a GPS, a camera and lights.

The hull is designed to accommodate 2 propulsion engines. It has 2 independent hatches and 2 line throwers. 4 servomotors are thus necessary. The opening and closing of the line feeders are operated by 2 servomotors which push/pull a metal rod (2mm) which passes through the line feeder.

The .stl file of the hull is divided into 3 parts (forward, middle, aft). I use epoxy glue (Araldite) to glue the PLA parts of the hull and other accessories (engine mounts, servomotors...). The hull is then painted to protect it from humidity (or at best, apply a coat of gelcoat).

All the files I use to operate the boat are included:

  • 3-part shell + files for reinforcements during gluing

  • mounts: motor, servomotor (micro size 9g), drive shaft

  • line-releasers

  • carrying handle

  • hoods with locking system

For the trapdoor opening system, it is necessary to print in PETG the file named "tige_shape" and the file "shape_V2". The files "shape_1" and "Shape_2" are useful if you want to use a 4mm aluminium rod.

Dimensions :

  • length: 39.5cm

  • width: 27cm

  • height: 13cm

The hardware and electronics I use in addition:

Engines :2826 1200KV

ESC: 30A

Receiver :FrSky V8FR-II HV

Transmitter: Taranis X Q7 (simpler and much cheaper models are available)

Battery: Lipo 3S

Actuator: micro 9g 22.8 x 12.2 x 28.5mm

Propellers: 3 blades 36mm

Shafts: 8/4mm

Aluminium rod for trapdoor opening system: 4mm

3D printing settings

Minimum printing area required: 30x20cm

Layer thickness: 0.3 for hull, 0.2 for accessories

Filling: 20%.

Hi. I've added 2 photos. It's a very simple assembly. Regard's

Hi, please any photo from inside instalation ?

Hi ! Yes off course. It's done : new .stl file is available, named "coque_complet.stl".

Hi, can you add the boat shell in one piece as .stl? I can then easily on a Anycubic Chiron. Thanks


New .stl shape files added. More easy to use, as shown on the photos. Don't hesitate to ask me if you need specific pieces.
