Many 3D-printed Parts

Our CanSat has a shell made of PET-G, a plastic that can be processed very well with the 3D printer. In the course of the project, we created a 3D model for the shell, but it kept changing. New sensors were added or more space had to be created for the gas collection bags at a certain point.

All models printed during the competition

In order to test the individual components, we have printed them out frequently; on the picture you can see all the test prints. We are surprised ourselves how many there have been in the course of the last six months. Of course, we will shred all the test prints and have them processed into new filament so that we can reuse them.

PS: The different colours are different filaments, some of which print faster.
