Braskem Case Study: 3D Printed Drone Arm Utilizing FL900PP CF Carbon Fiber Reinforced PP Filament
Learn more about how Braskem FL900PP CF Polypropylene Filament and nTopology design software was used to optimize a standard drone arm for optimal flight time, weight reduction and impact resistance. (Aug 2021)
Challenge: Factory drones have a lot of potential but traditional injection molding results in heavy, suboptimal part geometries, creating high stress fractures and reduced flight times. These mass produced parts are prone to breakage.
Key Results using Braskem FL900PP CF:
- 37% Weight Reduction
- 4.1% Increase in Flight Time
- 63% Max Stress Reduction
