Recommendations for the polypropylene printing process: SmartMaterials3D's polypropylene (PP) is the ideal material for drone printing, and it is available in both black and white. However, for printing in different colors, Fiberlogy polypropylene should be used instead. Although both filaments are composed of the same base material, their properties differ, so it is recommended to print the main body and arms with SmartMaterials3D, which is slightly lighter and stiffer. Due to its difficulty in adhering to other materials, it is necessary to use polypropylene packing tape on the hot bed before printing. To ensure optimal adhesion, the bed should be heated to 45°C before applying the tape. All parts are designed to be printed without supports. Printing Temperature: 190-220°C Hot Bed Temperature: 45°C Layer Fan: Enabled Profiles for Ultimaker CURA are included in the file, and links to the filament can be found below. Ensure that your printer is compatible with Arc Welder, which converts multiple consecutive G0/G1 moves to G2/G3 arcs, or disable it in the default print profile for optimal performance. The printing of the LED covers on the arms is accomplished by combining SmartMaterials3D's natural PP filament with another color via a filament change. To do this, we must add the commands "M300 S300 P1000" just below ";LAYER:32", which is an alarm that alerts us of the filament change in layer 32, and "M600" in layer 33, where the filament change will be executed, leaving it as follows: ;LAYER:32 M300 S300 P1000 ... ;LAYER:33 M600 For final assembly, a list of non-printable hardware such as screws and LEDs is required and is included in the file as a JPEG image. To ensure a successful assembly, it is important to have all the necessary components on hand. The other components printed in TPU are identified in the filenames. This allows for easy identification and organization of the various parts.
