Quadcopter Cad Drawings

Rating: 4 votes, 4.25 average.
I have finished my quadcopter frame and would like to share my autocad drawings with anyone who would like to build a frame type similar as mine. Materials are 1/8th inch lexan (polycarbonate), fastened with 5/16th nylon stand offs, and 1/4" nylon bolts/nuts. The frame has been very durable and survived crashes as high as 60'. The final version of this frame will be laser cut sometime in the next few weeks. I plan to update this blog with photo of the actual laser cutting, and final assembly of this frame style.

Material List:
(1) 24" x 36 x 1/8th Polycarbonate (Lexan, Makrolon) sheet.
(50) 5/16th" x 1/2" 1/4" center drilled standoffs Supplier: product-components.com
(50) 1/4" x 1" Nylon 1/4-20 bolts Supplier: product-components.com
(50) 1/4-20 nylon nuts. Supplier: product-components.com

    Hi vedder,

    Any chance you could save these as an .ai file and upload them?

    Sorry, I use Autocad 2011, and there isnt an option to save or export to Adobe Illistrator. Maybe someone one the forum can help?

    Its been a while since I looked - what options do you have for vector drawing output from AutoCAD except .dwg and .dxf?
