Default CAD file- Panel

Does anyone have a 2 part panel file for the RV6a? I am designing a new panel and would like to have one vs designing new if possible.

Hopefully i am asking in the right spot?


Thanks,

You can take the Vans CAD file and slice it up however you want. I started with a third party modular panel and now I have the pieces imported into the Front Panel Express tool. Here is a capture of the tool and a part of the panel that I've been working on.

Did this come from the 3D model that the guy in europe somewhere was selling? I sent him a note to let him know the canopy release handle was 90 degrees off...

It looks like the models from Van's. https://www.vansaircraft.com/downloads/

Look for the "3D Assembly" heading towards the bottom of the page.

Oh? He's been receptive to feedback elsewhere in the model. And the plans say to mount the handle horizontal.
