Personally, I see value in one mega thread/post, that allows it to be maintained by lurkers like me (whilst I’m rebuilding again for summer). I think doing it very similar to how you’ve got it in your mega CAD thread would probably be easiest, going direct DL link, with a link to thread with build.
Chinese alibaba/Slingshot HoverGlide (STL) | Front | Back | Link to build thread
Liquid Force (Fusion360) | Front | Back | Link to build thread
There’s a couple of reasons I think this would be preferential. Primarily, STL files seems be the default file type that’s shared. Your fusion files are bloody awesome and you’re right, they self update, remain current and can then be directly edited. However for reasons of IP/convenience etc it would seem the majority of files shared here are STL. The other main benefit would be is that 3rd parties can update/post to the wiki page and maintain it. Otherwise, it’s completely dependent on the OP formatting, updating and maintaining the original post in the build thread. Apart from yourself, I can’t see/think of anyone that maintains their build thread like you do (myself included). I think you’ve hit the nail on the head about having context when you share the files, but unless you’ve got OP’s that are going to maintain their original build thread, I don’t think it’s going to work. I mean the files (STL and Fusion!) the OP to this thread have asked for, are actually contained in the Chinese hydrofoil for efoil? thread, but completely buried and lost. I haven’t updated my build thread to include these. Plenty of examples of good useful content/links being buried in non build threads.
Dunno, just some thoughts. You’re the boss, that’s why they pay you the big bucks to make the decisions!
