DIY Drones: 3D Printing your Drone Parts

Whether you need to test a new prototype or you have finished your drone design and you want to produce it lightning-fast, 3D Printing is the way to go. Beyond speed, it also allows you to make your drone even lighter by unrestricted topology-optimized structure designs -improving battery life-, offers unlimited customizability for you or your customers and allows you to quickly manufacture hard to find spare parts.

Drone makers already know this and have been taking full advantage of our superior quality professional 3D printers since the very beginning, printing all sort of parts from simple electronic cases to full single-piece support structures or custom made sophisticated 3-axis camera gimbals.

Most manufacturing constraints are now gone, the assembly is no longer required, so choose the right material out of our wide range of materials and finishes and give us the opportunity to help your project to take off and succeed unlike any other!


Make your drone fly: Choose the right 3D Printing material

When designing a drone, choosing the right material is key. In this field, lighter means improved battery life and stronger means fewer frustrations in case of hard landings or crashes. This is why most people engineering drones go confidently with our plastic material: Lighter than most other plastic alternatives like ABS or PLA yet stronger than them, it is perfectly suited for virtually any drone part you could possibly need, regardless its size, color or surface finish.

Once you have your design ready, just upload it to our site to have an instant quote along with a 3D view of your object where you can use our free tools to double-check the solidity of your design or even get bulk discounts.

Thanks to our wide range of materials, we can help you with several types of projects: pocket drone, racing drone, quadcopter drone, drone frame, landing gear, electronic components, gopro mount, camera mount, etc.

Drones for Professionals: Take the lead in your industry

Imaging, surveying, topography analysis, photogrammetry, surveillance, aerial cinematography and so many other applications, drones are empowering professionals by giving them capabilities they never had before and at a cost they couldn’t have imagined.

When off-the-shelf generic solutions are not enough for your specific requirements, drones still offer a powerful platform on which you can quickly develop your own tools thanks to Sculpteo’s 3D Printing Cloud Engine. If you or your company needs small to medium-scale production runs we also have you covered with our Batch Control tools that give you total freedom to choose how we should run your batch, including its orientation, layer thickness, etc. Today your custom made solutions are just a few clicks away.

They 3D print with us

Labs, engineers, entrepreneurs...they choose online 3D printing
The industry of Marine Robotics has stifled innovation by keeping the mechanics and technology expensive. With 3D printing, people are able to prototype and final manufacture parts inexpensively and quickly. That's why we chose Sculpteo!
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 for the beautiful models that you [Sculpteo] have produced for us, we will order from you again.
