3D Printed Drone


By: Andrew Hawkins

This 3D printed drone is easily made and put together. It is just as good as a store-bought drone, if not better. You will need a 3D printer to make this, however. To make it you will need a lot of electronics, which can be found at your local electronics store. the link to the Instructables page on it can be found here: http://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Printed-Drone/

This relates to engineering because you have to figure out how to build the drone and how to fix it if it breaks. This also relates to engineering because it uses the engineering and designing process and as my teacher once told me, “Engineering isn’t engineering if you haven’t failed and restarted already.” His words are very good advice. There are many engineers that can work on this project, a structural engineer, mechanical engineer, electrical engineer, and including but not limited to general engineers. 3d printed drones work so well too!
