    Why the aluminum plate? It wouldn’t fuse to it if that’s what you are asking. But could integrate a recess for the plate

    The aluminum plate is the plate with the holes to bolt down the propeller. I just thought that it would be nice to glue the cone to it or print it right to the plate. Just thought it would look cool. Instead of a spinner. But you are correct if you made a recess in the bottom of the plastic cone that would even look better and also have a better gluing surface top and sides.

    Trying to make a tray for an A123 battery pack. Took me a few hours to create a 3D model. After lots of dimensions and thoughts.... ideally it will be screwed down through the four bolts, and then one Velcro strap to hold the battery in place with room for foam and Velcro.

    About an hour and a half print... we shall see if it works.... stay tuned!

    Pretty darn close... didn’t give any room for padding though. Battery kinda snaps into place which is cool, but needs finer tuning for a little padding support and my towers need to be a little taller where the Velcro strap goes.

    I need a different glass bed, mine is warped, kinda hard to get the print started, but still works with a little effort and starting slow.
