Quick test today with brass screw inserts into 3D printed parts. This will allow me to securely install the computer boards into the rocket’s electronic bays for example. But more generally, to have neat and solid mounting options. Although I have a 3D printer with a large print volume capacity, there are still objects I cannot print in one pass. Using such inserts and screws opens up to make larger models. The next test will be with a real computer board. I will in particular pre-drill holes for the inserts to avoid the melted plastic to re-flow inside the insert.
