I built a 3d printed micro octocopter more than 2 years back, when there isn’t really any brushed FC for more than a quad configuration. These days toy grade, quality multicopters came readily available, I decided to build one with more than 4 props.
Recently bought a FC for Eachine X6, from banggood.com, with 3d printed polyamide frame(Taulman bridge) on my heavily modified Ultimaker(200W aluminum heated bed-capable of heating hotter than 150’C, fully enclosed passively heated chamber., dual fan, dual extruder, actively cooled stepper motors, larger power supply and etc). Polyamide is rather flexible thus it is unbreakable and will survive in numerous crashes.
I mixed using used and new motors and since they are brushed micro, used motors provide less power than the new ones causing drifting and yaw. New 7×20 motors and hubsan x4 props(proved most efficient) from banggood is on the way and I am hoping to get better lift and battery life.
Total weight with FPV gears but the battery weighs 53.9g.
Last year my team and I made a large format delta arm robot – VLDP(Very Large Delta Printer) and have been wanting to publish, so here it is.
This print has a percussive quality to it owing to its large volume, having deep ringing bass
which could not be captured with IPhone internal mic. It’s about 450mm tall and took 8-9 hours to print this single walled vase.
작년에 전시를 위해 제작했던 대형 델타 프린터에 대해 여지껏 변변한 다큐먼트를 못하고 있었는데 더이상 까먹기 전에 해야 할 것 같아 슬슬 시작하는 중이다. 밤새 출력한 형상의 타임랩스와 연주 영상인데, 출력물의 크기가 워낙 크다보니 마치 드럼처럼 연주가 가능하다. 매우 깊은 울림의 베이스음역이 있는데 아이폰으로 촬영하다보니 아무래도 실제로 듣는 소리처럼 녹음이 되진 않았지만 맛보기엔 충분한 듯.
450mm정도의 높이이고 약 8-9시간정도 걸림.

Will also be participating at “Design for Life” party at the Design Museum aA in Hongdae, Seoul, Korea on the Saturday, 16th. Custom built large format delta 3d printer will present at the event.
홍대 디자인뮤지엄 aA에서 16일 토요일에 “Design for Life”에 FAB3 이름으로 참가합니다. 직접 제작한 대형 프린터를 놓고 출력 및 전시를 할 예정.
