Uploaded STL files have rudder extension in order to increase control power factor.
Wing GF tube reinforcement required.
Extra 2mm CFRP connectors (black) have been used for down beam stabilization.
All parts are only perimeters without top and bottom except wing.
Wing requires vertical spar in the reinforcement, recommended by Infill parameters iteration.
For different printing size, CAD file has been uploaded allowing you to modify STL files, or design, upgrade, ... IMAGINATION?

Dear UAVPilot1, there is all the information in the google+ barcelonaUAV website, but if you need something else contact me by mail: [email protected]
Notice that your infill percent and perimeters number are higher than original, I used 1 perimeter and near 1% infill rectangular.
Hope to see your BARCELONA 3d printed UAV soon

I just started printing the nose last night. I will get to the rest of the fuse and tail today and tomorrow and hopefully start on the wing on Thursday. I printed the nose with 3 perimeters and 10 percent infill. The rest of the fuse I will print with 2 perimeter layers and 10 percent honeycomb infill. I think the tail and wing parts that I want to stick with the 2 perimeter layers but reduce to 5 percent honeycomb infill. Thank you for a great project. I will post pictures when it is complete.

See your first printed parts and G-code parameters used. Amazing RED WINGLET! Congratulations Dani.

Hi Barcelona UAV betatesters, Since some of you have seen a problem in the FUSELAGE2&3 parts, new version where the wing bite has been added and 3 beams have been approached to reduce bed size.
Sorry for this handicap and do not print FUSELAGE2&3, but 2-2 & 3-2.

I'have printed only one perimeter for all parts but wings that has a light rectilinear infill adjusted to connect Glass fiber reinforcenment.

I'm about to print out the wings. How heavy will the plane be? wingparts seem rather haevy! cheers for the nice design!

NOW AVAILABLE: Fuselage10.dwg cad file. Autodesk software has been used under Student license.
PAY ATTENTION: 3D printing TECH + Autodesk SOFT = 20 $ homemade UAV, from PLATONIC world of the ideas to actual one.

Just heat welding for all parts, I'll make a video of this stage.

The parts are so huge..My printer cannot fit in ..

If haves used reprap bcn 3d+ (240x200x200).
I could help you by uploading CAD file and you can divide parts as you want.
Thank you for try it!

And how you get the wing parts together?

heat welding, tin soldering. Be careful because next parts could be deformed.

How to get the FUSELAGE together ? with super glue ?
