3D Printing UAVs

The video below from Sculpteo was shot from a UAV that had its parts made with a 3D printer.

“We’d been making our pieces through traditional manufacturing so far, at much higher costs and longer waiting time. When we discovered 3D printing, we were convinced at once.

“Thanks to 3D printing, pieces are really quickly available, which means we can test them within a few days, and make changes reactively. The material we chose allows us to create complicated designs we wouldn’t have been able to produce without additive manufacturing. The 3D printed pieces are also extremely light, are resistant and stiff enough for our needs.
