    This is in WSF? I hadn't realised how porous the prints were until I saw the paint tutorial. Did you flood with a thin cyano or try to 'skin' with a thicker gel?

    Great idea. :D

    Hi buho29,

    really love your project.
    I really like RC helicopters also and are curious what the base of your project is.

    best regards,

    Amazing project! Are the rotor head parts, swash plate etc all injection molded parts, or a Shapeways detail material?

    I just received my parts and I'm disappointed, they still change direction, there is trash

    Another piece that I ordered was very good

    if could have the opportunity to choose the direction even if they have to pay extra

    even for basic things is important, ball bearing holes ect ...

    on XY have a resolution of 0,05-0.1mm in Z is 0,2-0.5 mm

    if one day we were given the choice, I could try, for now I'll have to continue seek another solution

    tanks :)

    now there will be no update with Shapeways

    I tested my gear is a disaster :(, I wasted 28$ :(

    I tried another service print 3d

    without a direction control I not recommend printed mechanical parts (frame included) , in Z circle is an oval 0.3-0.5mm

    it's a shame, printed in the good direction the piece are very well
