    Small X8 build - 3d Printing Parts

    Hi Guys,

    got a 3d printer Friday and super happy that i made the decision to get one. I am in the process of desiging a smal X8 bird for gopro nex 7 etc.

    Key features:

    Wire rope vibration mounts:
    Plug and play Arms:
    Gimbal quick release etc.

    Components i will be deciding on the way.

    More important at the moment is to get the design of the frame going and to pre printer everything once to check out if everything is working the way it should be.

    Centerplate design about 170x170

    sliced center plate for 3d printing now.

    functional parts for the vibrations units.

    i must say i am amazed that some parts are really robust and can be used in a functional way for sure. the ability choose the density of the components also makes them light enough ! Think that just the first printer of several to follow

    That's awesome. I run a sign shop and my software runs one of these. I'm sure ones in my future. Was into large scale Rc helis, spent enough on little nick nacs I shoulda bought the printer.

    The modern printers definitely added functionality to the parts they spit out

    Great job Boris :-) It seems you need to tighten those belts ;-) Cura is the way to go.
    Warning this part rotates!

    i wonder if that is the same as the "impact modified" PLA i buy over here - resists snapping, you can tie the filament in a knot - but prints like a bitch compared to normal PLA

    I have to heat the bed to 70, print 1 layer, then turn on the cooling air (if the bed isnt at 70, it lifts off) the next two layers are a bit droopy from the heat, then it comes right, but you can see droops even further up if you dont have enough cooling air, hot end at 180 for the whole print

    saying all that, its still great stuff
    -----------------------------------------
    Cheers,

    Mat
