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.
The model is current available in advance for just for my supporters
GASB Three is a 3D printed plane, 70cm wingspan with forward swept wings. It's very fast and easy to print and assembly. The assembly require just 30 minutes. Almost parts of the plane are mounted with screws avoiding glue. This allows to mount and dismount the plane to repair it in case crash. Now you can print just the part damaged saving a lot of time after a crash.
The work is in progress, so all suggestions to improve the GASB Three are very apreciated. Below you can see the state of the art of the project. Feel free to add your comment in this page. Videos available here and here
Great care has been taken in the design of the screw seats. The thread of the screw is very integral to the structure of the piece
The countersunk head of the screw has an optimal seat in the piece and helps to distribute the forces during the flight of the model
All parts are fixed with 3mm screws (standard for wood)
In addition was provided 3mm carbon rods, to help to allign perfectly the parts avoiding mistake
The body of the plane during the mounting. The place for the battery is very large and allow you to use any kind of battery from 3S 1500mah to 4S 2200mah. An accurate disegn allow you to print the nose more short if you like a model more short.
The only parts that require glue are the wings, the ailerons and the hook for the catapult.
Wings complete during the mounting phase
Plane fully mounted just before to install the electronic parts. Inside the wings there is a bayonet that make the plane very rigid
9g servos fixed with bi-adhesive tape and keep in position with a rubber tape
The cover of the ESC site, is used also as runner to help in landing phase
Very easy and robus connection from servos to ailerons
Wiring of receiver. In my case a XMR FrSky 6 channels but are request just 3
A lot ot motorization can be used. The thrust must be 1Kg or more. You can use for example: A2212 2700Kv, A2217 2300Kv or a Sunnysky 2216 2300Kv
Bottom. You can see the holes used for the screws to fix the wings and the vertical stabilizer. Are visible also the holes for the screws taht fix the nose to the wings (close to entrance bord of the wings)
