I was posing a question to Larry Renger about making a combat plane from the Cox foam wing panels over on Stunthangar, and in his reply he talked about 3D printing a Spook:

"I actually did propose, design and have a prototype combat wing for the folded foam wings. The Dale Kirn Spook was a much better plane.
Of course, now, the Spook could be easily 3-D printed! Drawings of the parts are available! I would happily buy a set of parts! Name your price!"

I have the .pdf and .dwg files that I got from, I think, Ron Cribbs. If someone with a 3D printer wanted to try tackling this, I bet he could sell a few sets of kits. I don't know how much 3D printing costs. I'm going to accost a guy at work tomorrow and see if he can do it.

Those drawings will need to be redrawn in Inventor or Solidworks as a 3D part then the parts are exported as a STL file. The STL file is then loaded into a slicer program and GCODE is generated for the printer.

One can take a SVG file and import it into Tnkercad to create a 3D part from a logo or a drawing but only the outline is captured and you can extrude the shape to give it 3D appearance.

I have 2 3D printers that can each print 10"W x 12.5"L x 8"H

If you post up what files you have, I could redraw them in Sketchup and then convert to code for the machine. I'll verify it with simplify3d slicing program.
