TBS Discovery GPS Stand

TBS Discovery GPS Stand

So on my TBS Discovery, I didn’t have a place to mount the GPS Stand.

I decided against drilling holes into my chassis and possibly weaken or damaging the chassis.

I accessed the chassis for a suitable mounting point for the GPS, then I measured all the components.

Design

I did all the design work in Google Sketchup as I am very familiar with the programme and was able to design the part within a few hours.

the design is very simple and this is the way I intended it to be as all it needed to do was span 4 fixing points and allow the GPS to have a solid fixing point.

Made Images

I used my CTC to print the GPS Stand and these are the completed component images.

How To Print

Printing is simple I used abs for strength.

Infill doesn’t need to be high as it uses the strength of the chassis to support it. so 1 shell and infill of 10% to 20% would be more than enough.
