At Flite Test we’ve gotten to see some stunning planes being created with 3D printers. Whether it is made fully out of a printer or is a combination of foam board and 3D printed parts, the RC hobby is truly getting taken up to the next level.
Because we love the how a 3D printer can amplify RC in positive ways, we wanted to show you how to assemble a Forge 3D Printer in under 10 minutes and how to create your first printed RC part to complement your plane! Watch the video above for the full tutorial.
Take the printer out of the box and place on clean, level workspace
Get a friend to help you. It’s surprisingly heavy for how compact it comes in the box.
Read the manual before assembly
As with any machine that requires assembly, it’s important to read the manual before you start hooking things up. Even TJ made sure he read through it step-by-step!
Follow all instructions exactly
For more detailed step-by-step instructions, watch the video above. However, don't merely rely on Josh and TJ. It is imperative that you read the instructions to get it set up properly and to be able to print successfully.
What are you most excited about being able to print with your own 3D Printer?
