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.
The 4 Sculpteo benefits that make a real difference for your drones
High Definition 3D Printing
We're working with a range of full-color or monochromatic high-grade 3D printers that offer excellent accuracy (layer thickness from 25 to 150 microns). Build your own 3D printed drone now!
No need to wait until Monday morning to get a quote, do it online! Our exclusive 3D tools allow you to check the solidity of the walls and how details will render. They will help you know if your file is 3D printable or not.
There's no minimum order, we 3D print your model starting at 1 copy. If you are not in a hurry, we can offer you a cheaper price for your drone kit.
We can prepare your 3D file on-request and take charge of the finishing steps (painting, display case...). 3D printing your drone has never been so easy!
