#3DPrinting with High Strength Filaments for Drones #3DThursday

This week we’re 3D printing drone prop guards and thought it’d nice to test out some high strength materials.

There is many types of filaments, so we thought we’d try a few and see how they perform.

ABS, Carbon Fiber, XT copolyester and T-Glaze. All different but they’re all high strength materials.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

  1. I’m curious how HIPS would perform, vs. ABS.
