My second order arrived.
I printed:
A quadrocopter frame, 15cm, 7 grams
More stable then I thought (2x3, 3x3mm frame, 1,5mm for the smaller parts)


Coin/Size comparison:

"Eisprung" (german wordplay, Ei=Egg, Sprung=Jump, actually means "ovulation")
Springs really work Smile

I also printed a propeller but only the simple one was printable due to thin parts. Maybee more on one of the next orders... And I printed a rotating logo. If I remember correctly I used 0,75mm gaps, and first was sad that it would not turn, but it was just some powder left, and it then turned just fine...

Thank you shapeways for the excelent service, the frame turned out great.
Amazing what even an amateur can do even in a simple program such as Sketchup.

Now I have to wait for motors and electronic parts...
