Hi,

i did some work on the former for the Fan´s.
-find the right CG
-get the profile for the formers with modelling Expoy
-Draw the former in CAD and build a foam prototype

I weight the modell with all components in and get 12kg (26.4 lbs) so i hope i end at 13kg (28.6)

I will go with closed ducts, so this will be the major part of the building. ;-)

Well done
I use the same method when i make ducts. But on the last duct i made i did the cuts for the curves on the other side, and if the curve is sharp i just use more cuts. It wont need so much filler.

Looking very tidy. I like the use of electronic board behind the connector.

Thanks for the link, I have a bag of connectors that would work so much better by using those.
