3D Printing

After some successful tests of my QuadroCopter I decided to make a step forward. The goal is to make a smaller UAV which would be able to fly around a house. Carried by this vision I designed a CAD model of the mini QuadroCopter.

There was a need to create a new landing gear for QuadroCopter which would be lightweight and flexible in a way. With help came the FreeCAD. It is an open source CAD software which can be successfully used when designing 3D parts. Below in a figure on the left is a 3D model and on the right is the printed part. The part was printed using RepRap 3D printer.

At the very beginning I would like to show a short movie which show how the printer works. It is printing some replacement parts which in the future will replace the old ones.
