3D model description

This 3D model is based on an idea from Bill Alewine that was published in the June/July issue of, "Model Rocket News" on page five.

This button is design to help reduce or eliminate parachute shroud line tangling.

There are two versions - a six hole and an eight hole.

Each button is 1 inch (25.4mm) in diameter with each of the holes having a 3.5mm diameter. You should be able to upscale or downscale these STL models to suit your needs.

You might be able to use this device to slow down parachute deployment similar to the way sliders work on skydiving ram-air parachutes to reduce or eliminate the zippering of airframe tubes. See the video to show how it works.
