So i decided to make an RC-Benchy boat. Its printed with 25% infill ABS
I printed it on my regular prusa printer and my D-bot. I glued the parts with ABS-slurry (A cup of Acetone and some abs filament for glue) I also used the slurry and applied it to the body to make it waterproof, 2-3 layers.
There is one thing i would have done differently then i assembled the motor DO NOT use a glue gun, buy some epoxy-glue instead. I have some small leakage from the motor, so i removed all the glue and used ABS-juice to glue those parts also, but epoxy would have been a better option. I also integrated the support for the servo in the hull.
Update:There was no valid volume for the bodyparts that i had split, but i have re-uploaded them now so they are fine, but of course you can split the fullsizebody to as many parts you like.
The parts I have been using is these:
