Now that's a way more worthwhile use of 3d printing than the ar-15 parts. Very cool!
We print our quad and there are just things you cant do with molds like variable density fills. If engineered properly it is amazing!
Very cool! What method of printing did you use?
It looks awesome
Fuse Deposition Modeling
Impressive, is it a commercial machine or a homebuilt?
FlMuPhi198 your quad looks awesome. Sounds like you got your own 3D printer but if this was done with shapeways Im sure it would of cost around £500.
It was about $1800 worth of printing, The printing was done by Boeing but it was designed by a student in our robotics lab at embry riddle for an autonomous indoor vehicle competition.
It is made from pcabs and is designed to be rigid but not brittle. It is a really really tough quad and it is actually 6 parts, 4 of which are identical interlocking stators so if one is damaged it can be replaced really quickly
