Hi Nortontoo/Tyson,

Really nice rendering and model... I looked at the design and would like to edit it to suit my boat roof size. What software did you use to create/edit it? Seems the viewer cannot do that.

Many thanks Ryan

Hi Ryan,
I used Autodesk Fusion 360. It's free to use for personal use

Send me a PM with your email address. Id be happy to share the design file with you so that you can modify.

Finally found some time to work on mounting the radome. I mounted far forward over the brow as Hunter suggested. This leaves a lot of room for the roof rack once Eoin is able to get one built for me. I decided to feed the cables through the front of the cabin underneath the brow. I designed and 3D printed a chase to shield the cables. Only problem now is that it's too cold outside for the silicone to cure... So I'll have to wait for it to warm up a bit before I seal everything up. Since the roof has a slight draft, I also printed an interface piece to sit between the base plate and roof... Because why not? The interface piece is printed out a flexible TPU material.

That is super cool. What is the material used by the 3D printer?

The grey cable chase is PETG and the black spacer is TPU95.

In the process of installing the radome, I needed to peel back some of carpeting on the roof and overhead shelf to run the wires.

Question: What is the best adhesive to put the carpeting back? Rubber cement?
