ar.drone wall hanger by dfb Feb 2, 2013

Description

Wall mount for the AR.Drone (http://ardrone2.parrot.com) - when not in use, the AR.Drone takes up a lot of desk space. With this wall mount you can conveniently hang it on the wall.

Hi! I printed it the same was as in the preview picture, i.e. the part that will be touching the wall is the bottom of the print.

Lately I've been always printing with a raft, but that has more to do with me not calibrating the printer very well as opposed to anything specific to this model. There's a decent amount of surface are on the "bottom" of the print (the part that goes against the wall), so I imagine it'd print pretty well without a raft.

As far as supports go, I included some supports in the model - after printing I just cut them off with an x-acto knife.
Hi!

I saw the picture you had of the finished product on your build platform.

I was just wondering if you had any recommendations for printing it (what orientaton, did you use raft / support structures, etc)?
Sorry, I've never used S3D Creator. I modeled it in Blender and then used replicatorG to slice and print.

Instructions

The model includes some supports for the overhang; after printing, use a razor blade to remove them. I screwed it into the wall with a 1.25" screw I had lying around.

UPDATE (6 Oct 2013): someone asked me to upload the source (Blender) file I used to model it; hope someone finds it useful. I'm not an expert Blender user by any means, so apologies if it's sloppily done.

S3D Creator won't slice this at all, even after running it through netfab. Any ideas?

Can you also the Sourcefile?
I would like to use it for another RC plane and need to change it a little bit.
Thanks.

Hi nischi, I used Blender to model it, so I've gone ahead and uploaded the corresponding file.
Slic3r 0.9.9 and 0.9.10b botch this STL in an interesting way. It fills in the supports, and disconnects the angled beams from the top beams, near the top.

Has anyone used slic3r to make this? If so, can they share their settings?
I just use two thumb tacks and it works perfectly.
Where do you hang it by? I'm trying to imagine how I'd use two thumb tacks to hang an AR drone. Maybe post a picture?
