Introduction: 3D Printed Quadcopter
This is how to make a 3D printed quadcopter. It can be printed without support material and is secured using zip ties. The download for the pieces are here. More info about printing and other stuff is here. I will make it as soon as I get my 3D printer and add many more steps. Credit to Brendan22 on Thingiverse. (I am sorry about the lack of steps, but really please just go to the Thingiverse page for now. I am busy with school right now, thanks for understanding)
Step 1: Print the Pieces
The creator said that he used PLA, .25mm layers, and 40% infill, but you can do what you want. The total printing time is about 5.25 hours at 4500 mm/min without the optional posts and post plate. (If you do not know what these are then read the Thingiverse page again)
Step 2: Assemble the Pieces
Now it's time for assembly. This might take awhile but if you want this then it will not be so bad. First watch the videos on the Thingiverse page and then assemble the quad. I'm not sure what to total cost of the electronic parts are but it won't be too bad, probably about $80 US at the most.
Step 3: Fly Away
Once you have put in all of the needed electronics, you can go fly with it.
