I figured I'd share what I am up to during this frigid winter. I saw a FlightTest video posted on Youtube that featured 3D Printed airplanes from
3Dlabprint.com They look and fly great!
I upgraded my 3D printer:
For a test model I printed spinning top. It was a good test because my older 3D printer could not print the model, no matter how I tuned it.
I am currently testing the entire z axis print volume by printing the top plate of a robot chassis.
As you can see I can build around 5 larger panels and quite a few ribs for the r/c airplane.
Also some of the 3dprintlab planes have the ribs as part of the panel print. Basically you are assembling panels.
I figured if I can print out the panels for the Rosbot chassis without warping or curling, I will be ready to print a 3dlabprint airplane.
I should know if I need to adjust my printer soon.
