Drone Landing Gear
This landing gear needed to be both rigid and impact resistant so polycarbonate was an excellent choice.
Filament: Nylon Carbon Fiber
We typically use regular Nylon for gears but wanted to see how the carbon fiber variant would work with the added surface texture. While we thought the extra friction would be an issue, it performed very well.
Filament: PLA with PVA Dissolvable Supports
This intricate model required dissolvable (PVA) supports due to its complex shape. We utilized dense support layers in Cura to save on PVA consumption. Supports were manually removed and the remaining residue was quickly removed using warm water.
Filament: ABS Carbon Fiber with Heat-set Inserts
Printed without an enclosure and finished with heat-set inserts for extra rigidity on the threads.
Filament: PLA Carbon Fiber
This vase was an excellent model to show the detail created with our PLA CF. It was printed at 80mm/s and there was no layer separating or defect of any kind.
Filament: PETG Carbon Fiber
This part was used on one of the robotic arms we developed. PETG CF gave us the perfect balance of strength and toughness.
Drone Landing Gear Adapter
This part needed to take extreme impact and be able to flex so we decided to use ABS. The part withstood several crash landings and never broke.
Drill Bit Sharpener
Even after the heat from sharpening several drill bits, this part continued to hold its shape.
