Welcome to SMT Designs' Store

March 21st, 2020 - Just wanted to let everyone know that it is business as usual here at SMT Designs. Orders are being fulfilled (4 to 10 business days at the moment) and new designs are in the works for publication on the website (modular nose cone bays and the long awaited 98mm are in the queue).

A few things you can do to help if you are in an area where things are locked down -

  • take advantage of take out service at restaurants you like (every little bit will help them stay in business). We just did that this morning at a cafe that we have been going to for years.
  • talk to your barber/hairdresser and see if you can pay now for future services (that would help them get through the situation they have been thrown into).
  • don't panic unless you are really out of toilet paper

Just a note, the most reliable way to get in touch will be my business email at sthatcher@smtdesigns.com.  With the "rules to live by" here in Washington, all I can say is that I am looking forward to the "next" launch where ever that is and I hope to see you on one of the fields in the future!


December 31st, 2019 - I just wanted to say Happy New year and I hope 2020 will be a great year for you. Thank you for your support this last year and let's do more rockets together in 2020.


November 4th, 2019 - Product Bulletin - The distributor of the Venom Fly 300mAh 2S LiPo battery is unable to maintain the small size of their battery any longer. They had to switch to a different overseas manufacturer earlier this year and the new factory can not make the battery at the size it has been. The "new" battery will not fit the battery carriers that are designed for the Venom Fly. A new design will be made that supports a single Venom Fly once the factory can maintain a consistent size (date unknown). If you find that you are unable to get the smaller Venom Fly battery, SMT Designs will replace your carrier for $5 (shipping included) with one that fits the Turnigy 300mAh 35-70C. SMT Designs will be recommending the Turnigy from this point on.


 November 3rd, 2019 - Production and product delivery - Any orders place in the last week or two, will be shipping out over the next ten days. I am also releasing a preliminary version of a Hybrid Bay Assembly Document (PDF) that can be used as a guideline for the 54mm, 65, and 75mm bays kits that are available here and that came with the Miss Riley Rocket.

Thank you!


Here you will find a variety of innovative rocketry products.  They are based on years of experience in the field of electronics, rocketry, science and the advent of 3d printing.

You can find the rest of the story on the About Us page.

Thank you for visiting!

The mainstream product line is a series of 3D printed parts for creating electronic bays for rockets from 38mm and up.  The products consist of modular parts that attach together in a sequence you define.  They handle custom, single, dual, and redundant deployment (L3) designs.  They also allow for re-configuration, re-use, and even easier field upgrades.  Two great places to start would be  Electronics Bay Design - Putting It All Together and Diagrams, How To's & Concepts.  Of note, there are several products that can be used in more traditional electronic bay designs and they can be found in General Rocket Components.

I would ask you to please read about 3D printed products.  Also, if you have specific requirements and you don't see exactly what you need here, contact us and let's talk about solutions for your project.
