Anyone fancy testing there printers out?   I've got some gimbal stl's that I've been playing with.. They might / might not be the finished part but I was wondering if anyone wants to give them a go on there printer. They are quite small.. and might be a bit tricky to print. I've done mine in ABS and they haven't come out bad at all. 

Let me know..

Steve

I can try. Gimbal is my greatest headache with this project. I will use Firefly Q6 camera because it has gyro stabilisation and video recording can be triggered from radio. This gives really Mavic like experience when you are able to start recording while in air. The gyro stabilisation together with gimbal should result with super steady image :).
The problem is that the nose of the design is too short and camera and gimbal will stick out a lot.

Hey Bazyl78,

Welcome to the forums. Please find attached a pre-released version of the gimbal parts..  They will change as I've noticed I've not left a hole for the usb to plug in!  opps.. Anyway, let me know how your's comes out. They might need rotating.. or supports / both.. see how you get on.

Thanks,

Steve

Moving right along at 22% done.  You got too much time on your hands haha.  Ya on the cam, don't want a front heavy heli.  But I bet it balances just fine with the centered weight of the battery.



Almost 60% woot!


80%:

ABS and Simplify3D for slicer.  Just pasted an 80% shot.  I have to head out to Soccer practice.  So won't be back for completion.  So you can at least see what most of it looks like.  But appears to be printing fine.  Keep in mind I know not a thing bout settings haha, so mine are defaults lol.  I need to learn heh.  Ohh and software, if you mean what type of printer firmware/software, it uses Sailfish.
