RC10T 3D printed rear bulkhead

Post by rdnether »

I just finished the design of a 3D printed rear bulkhead for my RC10T. I printed it using carbon fiber infused ABS. The original bulkhead weighted in at 25g, this printed part weighted in at 9g without the brass threaded inserts, 13 with the inserts. Everything seems to work fine, I suspect that it will be stronger than the original part.

Very cool bulkhead! Nice job! Interesting choice of material too.

Nicely made part , I did try ABS CF and was never really sure if the CF brought anything to the party , it tends to make things stiffer but ABS is pretty stiff already , looks very pretty though and is easier to print than regular ABS .
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.
A problem shared is a problem halved but an advantage shared is no advantage at all.

I cannot say definitively that the CF makes the part stronger. I have had good luck with the filament and it prints great!
Thanks for the comment!

Great looking print! Are you using M3 fasteners now? Will you sell / share the design?

Most are 4-40 inserts:


The bottom two are 8-32 inserts:


I have a few tweaks that need to be made before I make it available.

Thanks!

Are the brass inserts necessary?
