Printing Settings

Use the settings below for reference. The parts were tested on the Ultimaker 2, Type A Machines Series 1 and the FlashForge Creator Pro. We used Simplify3D to slice the parts using our custom profiles. You can download our profiles for Simplify3D below.

Customize Original Design

The parts where designed in Autodesk Fusion 360. The design has been made public, and available to download in different formats if you'd like to use a different CAD software package.

NinjaFlex grip

Use Ninjaflex (TPE) filament to print the insole part. This allows the mount to properly grip onto the middle of the hoverboard. We recommend regular NinjaFlex.

Materials

We recommend using PLA material to reduce wraping while printing. Althought the parts can be printed in different types of filament, such as ABS, PET and Nylon.

Tolerances

The parts were tested with common printing settings (listed in the table).

Bed Leveling

Any parts with large surface require a well leveled build plate. If you're using a heated bed, you can minimize warping. Blue tapers tape, build tak, and sticky adhesives can help keep your part flat and adhere to the bed.
