These are front feet extensions and a rear foot for the DJI Mavic Pro. I saw designs similar to this and designed my own in Tinkercad. They will raise the camera (measured from the bottom of the lens) from 5/8" to 1 3/4"and the rear of the craft from 7/16" to 1 5/8".

Doesn't Matter








I printed these with PLA, with 4 top and bottom layers and 4 outer shells.

You may need to adjust the scale slightly for a tight fit on the front extensions. I found that the higher resolution and infill I printed on the test prints the looser the fit. These files are a nice tight fit on my Mavic Pro, but results may vary depending on certain printers, settings, material used, etc.

I sliced the rear leg just to protect the original legs and give the rear plate some protection. Turned out great for my purpose.

Thanks for the design, no issues with vision sensors so far :)

Awesome glad it's working for you!

what are the dimensions and like how big is the hole for the foot of he drone

From the bottom of the front leg to the upper-most top it is 43.15mm. The top section is 15.53mm wide (left to right) and 20.30mm deep (back to front). The hole for the foot is oblong just like the foot itself, so it's hard to give exact dimensions. I promise if you use my print settings it will fit. The rear foot is 37.20mm tall.

Are there any issues with scratching or marking up the front legs of the Mavic?

I guess there's always the chance of that, but I myself am not concerned with a few scratches. I really don't care what the drone looks like as long as it performs.

Function not fashion.....

Thanks so much for the upload, they're fitting perfectly on my Mavic. Printed on my Creality CR10 with pla at 0,2 - nozle temp 200 - bed 60 - infill 65%
Very good and tight fit with these settings.

Excellent job. I printed in a matching color and glow in the dark for fun and both turned out well. Good job on the scale and design and thinking through the height.

Awesome glad you like them! The glow in the dark is a great idea.

Hey, my DJI Mavic officially has got high heels, now :-)

Note: I had to print the left foot 3x until it finally fitted the Drone. I had to change the scale in Slicer to 1.03 in X/Y to make it fit. Otherwise it wouldn't... With a lot of power I can fit the right foot on but also recommend to scale 1.01-1.02.
Printed with 0.2 layer height.

Thanks for the feedback! As stated in the item details "You may need to adjust the scale slightly for a tight fit on the front extensions. I found that the higher resolution and infill I printed on the test prints the looser the fit. These files are a nice tight fit on my Mavic Pro, but results may vary depending on certain printers, settings, material used, etc."

As with any design there are a lot of variables and prints can vary with material used, settings (layer height definitely being one the design was intended to be printed high resolution 0.1), different printers etc. On my FlashForge the design fits perfectly on both feet. Also it shouldn't take a lot of power at all to put them on, just a nice snug fit.

Glad you got it sorted!

Using a Da Vinci Junior which Ive had for one day.

The front legs are too tight to fit. I have scraped on the inside of the legs in case there was a residue, but still no good. Have built several times now (0.4mm) and none fit.

Any assistance appreciated.

PS they look good even if they don't fit! ;-)

When you say 0.4mm do you mean your layer height (resolution)? If so try printing at 0.2 or 0.1. Also what material are you printing, and what is your infill percentage? Look at the print settings I posted on the details page and try printing matching those. What program are you using to print? Have you adjusted the scale slightly between each attempt? You may just need to familiarize yourself with your printer since it's brand new. Let me know how you make out, but definitely print a higher resolution and at least 60%-70% infill.

OK, I will have another go using 0.1

Using PLA - and didnt even see anything for infil percentage. Using the XYZ print software.

You are correct I need to familarise myself! This was my first print attempt! ;-)

Printed the rear end. My conclusion, the support brackets on the inside are 2mm to short to get a tight fit. I mean the block which are falling into the 2 mavic holes.

Yes I did leave it just ever so slightly loose because of printer tolerances and differences in material that people use to print. I could have made a perfect fit on my machine but odds are it would be too big on others and wouldn't fit. I would rate her it be slightly loose than not fit at all. It has zero effect on flight as there is barely room to move, about 1-2mm as you say, and the way the foot 'pinches' the tabs it's very solid as is.

Perfect fit with PET-G

Awesome glad they work for you!

Worked perfect. Really nice fit on the front legs. Good design.

I got my Mavic yesterday. Super Awesome!

I want to try these out, but do they have any effects on flight speed or stability or anything like that? I'm sure it doesn't but I just want to be sure.


I've seen no negative reprocussions at all. Doesn't interfere with the downward sensors or flight what so ever.

@filmscum, You just saved me money and time!!! You are awesome. Thanks for the model!!!! Keep on creating!!! :)

Thank you. I'm happy you're happy!

New to 3D printing and realistically haven't a clue as to how to use the printer but we bought it for company projects through the company and as of yet haven't really explored the printers capability's so lets see where i can get with this little project shall we.
I'll stay in touch and and if i need any help I'm sure you guys and girls will be there to assist (I hope lol)

Your design is stolen for business, check out this FB account

Yeah I know. It's really sh**ty when people take your design and profit from it. If anyone wants to go to that facebook page and shame them please do! I think the more negative posts they get the better.

Hi, I'm looking into the design files' license and was wondering: A friend of mine wants me to print these parts for him (he doesn't own a 3D Printer) - can I ask him to reimburse me for filament and printer maintenance in exchange for these parts? Are you saying I can't legally print parts for people using Thingiverse .STL files?

Sure you can print them for your friend. At first I was getting upset at people making my design for profit. The facebook guy mentioned above is producing them on a massive scale, and he was a total jerk when I confronted him about it. I'm just happy people are using and liking them, and for those who aren't lucky enough to have a printer of their own it's people like yourself who are doing a good deed. Thanks for asking!

Fab design. Great work. Can I please ask how this design is now being mass produced by every man and his dog and is all over eBay and Amazon by Chinese companies when you only uploaded the design on 17 December. Did you use the design from elsewhere? Just wondering as seems strange companies on the other side of the world can market so quickly and appear to have been available for weeks and since long before 17 December.

What may I ask are you implying? I saw a design on eBay that looked to be the best option for legs and then proceeded to build my own models from scratch in tinkercad. It took me several days, a dozen or so prints of the front legs and 4 for the back to get it right. I then posted it here for others to print out themselves. The person mentioned in the post above who is selling it on Facebook admittedly took my files, tweaked them slightly and is selling for profit. While also using one of my photos to show how the legs fit.

I'm not implying anything. I'm asking if the design was yours from scratch as I am not able to understand how all the Amazon and eBay sellers managed to get them designed, made and available for sale weeks before you even listed the design here. Therefore, if it was not your original design but you remised another then I just feel maybe it should be noted that this is a remix. Nothing more.

From what I understand and I'm sure you will correct me if I'm wrong but a remix is taking a design (i.e.files) from sites like this and remixing it to tweak certain things to create new designs. And when doing so they are asked to mention the original designer out of courtesy. I visually looked at a photo on eBay then went into Tinkercad and built my own models, from scratch, which were different from the ones I looked at. So to answer your question yes this design is mine from scratch, I didn't start with someone's files. And more so I put them on here for others (like you) to print off for free, not making a penny? The OP of this thread simply noted that someone is making money off a remix of my design. I contacted them and they admitted as much. I didn't remix anything.

Understood, and as I said right at the beginning, great work. Thank you for clarifying.

rear foot breaks with the a little bit of pressure... :(

What were your settings? What material did you print? I can literally pull on mine from all directions with moderate pressure and have yet to break it. I would print at high resolution with the minimum of 70% infill if not more. Shouldn't break with a little pressure.

printing on m3d printer,,, highest resolution and fill,, used the Opaque 3d ink,, going to try the ABS next...

Comments deleted.

Perfect!!!! Awesome work... can you share de open files (source), for we customize.

thank you. I made the two legs parts 2% larger so they fit well.

XYZ PRO 1.0 Printer so they may work fine on other printers.

Awesome! Yes with things like these different printers will have varying results.
