Hexacopter Rapid Development with 3D Printers

One day soon there will be thousands and thousands of different models of DIY copters and robots moving around. What is now in hands of hackers, makers and hobbyists will become ubiquitous like bicycles...

This is just a preview of things to come and you will probably be able to make on your low cost home machine.

Students at Wentworth Institute of Technology were challenged to develop a functional hexacopter using six different manufacturing processes, including 3D printing. 95% of the 3D printed components were produced using the Stratasys uPrint SE and Objet30 3D Printers.
