Quad props by IronAwe Jan 18, 2013

Description

OK, brand new 8x45.obj and 8x45.x3g files which definitely works in makerware. Sorry for the issues. Good to go now though. These are 8x4.5 props modelled on the ones found on the witespy quad page.

It is best guess. I don't actually have a 3d printer, so I can't make proper adjustments and compare the two until it arrives.

How was this model constructed? Is it built from measurements from the actual prop or best guess? How was it measured and how close to the actual original prop is it?

It is 9/1/2014
It printer it with my makerBot.
The result was so weak. I dont think that It can move my quadcoper up at all.
Sorry

While I respect the talent of the designer and this is a great model, I'd never put these on a motor and spin it up to speed. Props run in excess of 8k RPMs. There's a lot of force between the acceleration of the blade and the air resistance. I've seen cheap injection molded props fail in flight, no way I would try a printed prop. One potential application would be a plane. A plane can handle a total loss of power and still land, so if you want to test a printed prop I first recommend a bench test and then a plane, not a multicopter.

Any suggestion how to print it cleanly? I printed with Makerware, using raft and support, but the support is a pain in the @$$ to get off cleanly. The blades are so thin, that I fear I will damage them removing the support material. Suggested Print settings? ABS or PLA?

The 8x45 STL file has mesh problems :( I printed with Makerware, and the propellers were not attached to the center body by much if anything. I uploaded it to netfabb, and downloaded their repaired version, attempting to print again! :)

IronAwe on Dec 19, 2013 said:

Thanks man, fixed the stl file so should be good to go now. Take some vids!

Hello, I am looking to print the 10x47 props however I do not use object files. Is there any way you can upload stl files please?

IronAwe on Oct 30, 2013 said:

Yes I will upload .stl files for you.

I am looking for a 7x4.5 is this going to be possible? I am going to scale the 8x4.5 down by .875 and that should give me 7 inches. Will post on results.

IronAwe on Aug 22, 2013 said:

Hey mate, if you scale them down, you are going to have problems I think. They might end up being too thin, and the centre hole might be too small as well. Let me know how it works out for you

Hi! Can you make a 9x4.7? Or 9xwhatever? ;) Thanks!

mikeq on Jan 19, 2013 said:

I could really use these modeled for 10x4.7 if you can post that size I will try to print them. Thanks.

IronAwe on Jan 19, 2013 said:

10x4.5 are up, I know you asked for 4.7, but I don't have any to model from, so won't have it up for a while, is this ok?

IronAwe on Jan 19, 2013 said:

OK mate, I'll see what I can do

IronAwe on Jan 18, 2013 said:

OK, seems to have worked, I have a .x3g file here.

IronAwe on Jan 18, 2013 said:

Hey mate, I just uploaded a new model, did you want to try and download this one and retry it? I have just downloaded makerware and will have a play around with it, see if we can get it working.

carlandj on Jan 18, 2013 said:

Someone might know a trick, but the props come out as dark grey on Makerware for me. The only thing I know this seems to indicate is that the CAD model is not actually solid. Does anyone else have any better luck with it or know how to get around this? I do want to try them out.

IronAwe on Jan 20, 2013 said:

Hey mate, just put a new file up if you want to try them. 3rd time lucky. Appears white in makerware for me. Put the x3g file up too. Cheers mate, let me know how you get along.

IronAwe on Jan 18, 2013 said:

Sorry, not sure if you were notified of my reply as I didn't use the reply button. Anyway, there is a newer model uploaded and it seems to be working. I have an .x3g file here from makerware.
