Here are some shots of my well-used launcher...I couldn't find the deflector, it had been damaged by an EnerJet motor blow-out which put a big dent in it, and I may have tossed it sometime. If I come across it, I will post pictures later.

I tried to get a shot without reflections off that chrome, but was not able to do it with this camera.

Default Centuri ID-65 Blast Deflector

David,

Thanks for the Centuri Power Tower photos. I've attached photos of the Centuri ID-65 Blast Deflector, both painted and unpainted versions, which were used on Centuri Servo Launcher, Centuri Power Pad and Centuri Power Tower.

Have you modeled this ID-65 Deflector in SolidWorks yet? If not, I can provide more detailed dimensions, if you would like to model it.

Kind regards,
Jeff Jenkins

You must be rich! I inquired about Solid Works today, and when the lady called she started chatting away and I said wait a minute. First, tell me how much it costs, because if it's too much all else is just wasted time. 6G's for the basic? I had to shower and change my panties right after I said Good Bye...

@Jeff -- no I haven't modeled this one...since it is a formed stamping, I'm not sure how to model it with the sheet metal features in SWX. You might document the dimensions here, so down the road it will be available.

@Woody -- HAH! I wish! The company I work for has a licensing agreement with SWX that allows employees to install 1 copy on a home computer for non-commercial purposes.

Solidworks is available at very low prices when purchased for educational use. Many people can qualify under their requirements, including homeschools.

Look at Autodesk's Fusion 360. It is free for use by hobbyists and small businesses.

OK I took the challenge and using MK-1 eyeball from your photos, I modeled a best-guesstimate analog to the stamped deflector...I couldn't model the bottom stamped pan properly, so it would be welded corners. I've never used the "Deform" feature before to produce those stiffening ribs and it will take some tweaking to get them right, but I think it looks fairly close...if you will measure your deflector, I will update this model.

I still have an issue with generating the flat pattern with those dimples (ribs), so I need to talk with somebody at work that really does sheet metal parts for a living. All of my stuff is chunky machined parts, but it's interesting to learn something new in SWX.

Is this the same blast deflector that was used on the pad that had the pneumatic control and the battery located in the launcher whose name are conveniently forget. Because if it is I know I've got one in there minus the pneumatic controls it's in my attic but I could dig it out and I'd be willing to send the deflector or even the whole pad to somebody that wanted it I've got no use for it.
