For some reason Cura thinks there is a layer at about 3/4 of the lid. Never had that problem before. Will look into it asap. I’ll post a fixed version.

The original file is on my backup drive and it’s packed up somewhere since we’re in the middle of moving. What you can do to print it anyway is print without infill or supports. Increase the wall thickness so it doesn’t need infill in the lid. After printing you can remove the layer that it printed at 3/4 of the lid. Hope that helps. If not let me know and I’ll try to work it out using the STL file.

Fairly new to this yes.
I have attached a screenshot from Simplify3d with the box shown upright with no support selected in the process settings.

Wow that's weird. You can try slicing it with Cura, that's what I always use. I know that doesn't cause issues. But I'll run it through the Netfab online service and reupload it.

Try the file that says fixed at the end.

Hi CC, I did manage to print the 'fixed' file. Many thanks for taking the time to do that.
However the printed item can only hold two blades per side!
I noted your blades are not standard, do they have a smaller 'hub' size?

Couple of pictures for you to look at.



That's odd. My props are carbon Maytech props and they indeed have smaller hubs, but before I bought these I fitted my original yuneec props in there. I could fit 3 on each side when you put them in at a 45 degree angle.
I'll check it tomorrow and snap a pic for you.

The print looks really solid by the way, very smooth.

I can fit two each side if I incline them at 45deg but the third one does not go all the way down. This means that the upper tip of the blade is above the other two blades and would not allow the lid to close properly.
I wonder if it got resized by a few percent when you fixed the file?

I will measure my print and send them to you later on for comparison.

Have a great weekend


Put 2 stacked upon each other and the third at 45 degrees. Check the edited photo's. It's the last in line.

Try it like this. Right side holds 3 originals. 2 stacked and 1 at 45 degrees.

thats better, although I may just guy the same props as you use, are the maytech any quieter than stock?

Yes they are alot more silent than the stock ones. They also are a lot more rigid so they provide more stability and are also a lot less likely to break when they hit a branch or other objects. I do reccomend using propguards when flying proximity missions. They are a lot more dangerous than the original ones. I payed 45 euro for a set of 6 when they were on sale. So they dont cost a lot more than the originals.

Ah yes, my mistake.
I downloaded the box part of the file into simplify 3d and the file when prepared for printing shows triangular infills inside the box.
No support is included in the print settings, is this correct?

Triangular infill is selected by simplify3d itself, you can change this yourself. You can turn the files in your slicer so the openings in the box face up. That way you won’t need supports.
Is 3D printing new to you? These are quite basic things you need to learn when starting 3d printing. If so feel free to ask though. I’ll be glad to help.

I love this idea and would like to print it.
However file named 'Typhoon_H_Propbox.stl' is far too large to be printed by machine.
Could you split these two items into separate files?

Many thanks
