Can students use a Different type of filament outside of ABS? Are they allowed to modify or create new 3d models for their drone?

The ABS Plastic we are currently using appears to be brittle even with 100% Infill. After some research of my own along with discussing it with students, this appears to be a common issue. Are students allowed to use other filaments such as PETG, PLA Plus, or TPU?

Hello, there are no limitations regarding the materials you 3D print with. I would imagine PETG and PLA/+ would be ideal substitutions to ABS.


TPU is probably not a bad bet either for some of the landing leg parts. I haven’t tried it, but I imagine it would be less susceptible to snapping on a hard landing.
