I had a few requests for the file so I will post them here. Over time I have found some differences in diameter of the paper towel rolls and you may need to wrap electrical tape around the base to get them to fit properly.

  1. Would you share the design files for the 3D-printed rocket parts and the launcher? I have 120 high school students coming to an Aviation STEM camp and I’d love to introduce them to model rocketry this way.

    1. Site updated with a zip file to include some of the models (3MF format). If the fit is not perfect, use electrical tape to get a good seal.
