Printing a drone

This is a project I worked on in a project course of my school. Basically we were printing a 3D drone and my task was to design the 3D CAD model of the frame. Inspiration from prothetics and priority on modularity are some features of this design.

In the project course of our school, we set out to cre­ate a com­put­er designed drone, that we would lat­er print – using a 3D print­er that our school just recent­ly obtained.

Here is the drone we designed:

The final prototype.

Our first flight at our school

After suc­cess­ful­ly design­ing and print­ing the drone, we were giv­en the chance to present our drone design – in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cologne – at the inter­na­tion­al con­fer­ence for mate­r­i­al sci­ence ICACC16 in Day­tona Beach, USA.
