Is this made up of multiple parts that I have to assemble or will it print already assembled. Also, This will only print out the frame, correct?

This is printed parts that hold cut to length poplar squares (from the home store) in an X quad with printed parts for motor mounts, landing gear, flight board holder, and battery tray as separate parts (all are attached to this page). All the parts will be assembled with zip ties, nuts and bolts, and printed snapping pins.

Nice design. Is there any reason why I couldn't use 5/8 square aluminium tube with this version?

Should work just fine. The motor mounts might need to use the other version that mounts with bolts since the zip ties dig in to the poplar a bit to prevent the mount from sliding off the end. The scad files from the 3/4 in version can be resized to the 5/8 size for the motor mounts.
