Nothing fancy to see here, I'm just posting to share my excitement over receiving my first prints. I am new to 3D modeling and 3D printing so it is still a very strange feeling to create something digitally and have someone magically create and mail it to me. This has been a great learning experience and I can already see areas to improve on and mistakes to try avoiding again in the future.

Thank you very much, Shapeways! Surprised

Wow, thats a very cool combination... I mean to be an electronics expert and use it in printed objects. Smile

Yep. It's already been test flown but as I suspected, the hinge is too fragile and broke after a hard crash. I'll have to improve on the design!

Thanks! I'm certainly no electronics "expert", but printing seems to go hand in hand with just about any hobby Smile
