MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
I designed the wings using TinkerCAD. The purpose is to use them for a micro RC flying wing.
The assembled wing is 40cm (400mm). I was able to print each wing diagonally on my Monoprice Maker Select 3d v2.1 printer that has a 200mm build plate. I covered the wings with packing tape and used foam plates to cut out winglets that I drew freehand. The control horns were scaled down (75%) from these: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:631566. The CG is just behind the box that holds the receiver brick. The receiver brick and motor are attached using hot glue.
It also has a holder for a camera, has built in control horns, and pushes the cg forward a little more. Print the three pieces. (yellow and red in photo). I recommend a dab of hot glue where the control horns and the camera mount meet the plane body. For anyone needing more space between the elevons and wings due to poor tolerances during printing, use v3.1.
Printed with 2 walls (.4mm) and ZERO top and bottom layers. For infill I used a grid pattern in Cura. This is what generates the wing structure.The wings should be oriented on the plate the same for each wing, though a reverse orientations should be fine too. This helps the grids to line up when assembling the wings.
