As part of my build, I have been doing some CAD work in order to CNC cut many of my parts. Because of this, I have basically ended up drawing the entire aircraft – at lease up to this point. I plan on completing this as a move forward with my build. I am using Fusion 360 to do this CAD work which is a product I love and use for almost all my CAD. I also use a couple of other tools for my actual cutting depending on what machine I am using, for my CNC router I use Estlcam and for my Co2 Laser cutter I use LaserCAD. For both, I export DXF files out of Fusion 360 using Addon tool “DXF for Laser Cutting”.

    1. I would like to but I do not want to share basically how to build the airplane without giving credit to Leonard – the designer of all the LE’s. There is no way for me to prove that users have purchased the plans – if there was then I would not have a problem sharing. I would also need to get approval from Leonard.
      Again, sorry.

      1. I am sharing many of my files that I have generated base off of the plans for many of the parts – am hoping those will help and should help with any builds so long as plans are onhand.

  1. Hey thanks a million for the CAD FILEs really appreciate your kindness and generosity of spirit

      1. Have you thought about asking to partner up so that you can also get some credit? I would love the Cad files but also understand giving credit where it’s due. I have inherited a Legal Eagle drop my grandpa and I’m looking to finish it or maybe sell it. I dono yet.

        1. I have made some of my cad files available – link is in the intro page – https://cloud.virtualmakerspace.com/s/6CiNKpPpFpWorwA

          I have thought about contacting Mr. Milholland about sharing my entire CAD files but not something I have approached him about yet. Also, my drawings are not complete – I never finished some of the details like all the rigging and whatnot.

          Anyway, maybe one of these days 🙂
