XLS450 Snowflake Mount


3D Printed mounting system for the Gilbert Engineering XLS450 Snowflakes. The mounts provide a frame structure behind the coro to increase strength and allow mounting to various surfaces as well as provide rigidity to the prop after it has been slit in half for shipping. The mounts are sized to fit 1/2″ EMT conduit and are designed to be zip tied to the coro. A screw can be inserted through the top of the mount and into the EMT to secure it in place. The XLS450 mounts are available in two configuration versions, Cross Mount and Mega Mount. The Cross Mount version utilizes a 1/2″ PVC cross at the center junction with the included EMT to PVC bushings which allow the smaller EMT to fit securely inside of the PVC fitting. The Mega Mount version utilizes a 6 spoke printed hub at the center junction to connect the EMT conduit arms with one of arms being able to pass continuously through the hub. Please select whether your XLS Flake has the coro reenforcing backer plates or not. Colors may vary, typically they are white or black. If you have a specific color request for white or black please include a note indicating your preference with your order, but keep in mind that it may increase processing time for in-stock items. Includes 3D printed parts only.

Important alignment information: The design of the XLS Snowflake is not symmetrical about its axis. Variations in pixel hole locations exist between 2-4 millimeters if the prop is mirrored horizontally or vertically. If the mounts were designed to fit perfectly with this asymmetry, then each mount would be a unique design and any rotation, horizontal or vertical flip from that one orientation would cause the mounts to fit quite poorly. This obviously would be problematic, so the mounts have been designed to fit in the median location and the pixel openings are large enough to account for the asymmetry. Our recommendation for fitting the mounts to the XLS Snowflake is to first place the XLS on a flat surface before pushing pixels and then place the mounts on the prop with the EMT conduit per the renderings. With the mounts inserted into the EMT, you can then adjust the placement to achieve the best overall fit and mark the coro for making the zip tie holes. Once the holes are made, attach the mounts to the prop with zip ties, but don’t fully tighten them down until all the EMT sections are inserted so there is some wiggle room for making adjustments to the mounts.

3D printing parts is a slow process and we have a whole print farm running 24/7 to fulfill orders and build stock of the more popular items. If you order a product that shows “made to order” we will move it directly to the print queue where it will be printed as soon as possible. While normal processing times for most orders with made to order items is less than a week, it can fluctuate. Very large orders can also experience longer than normal processing times as well because of the high number of hours it takes to produce lots of parts. If processing times are expected to be longer than two weeks before shipping, there will be a banner at the top of the website indicating the expected wait times. See the FAQ page for more info.

All of our 3D printed parts use PETG filament which provides good flexibility and resistance to UV exposure when used seasonally.
