Micro R/C heli 3D print
by IKE 24-Mar-2010 13:54

This amazing micro R/C helicopter is made almost entirely from 3D printed parts. Not only it is fully functional but it is also very light and strong. The helicopter was designed by Jose Alonso (buho29) and it was printed by http://www.shapeways.com with the method of powder deposition.---

The printed parts have very complex geometry and their accuracy is good even in very small sizes.

Parts made with powder deposition are very porous and can be infused with cyanoacrilic glue in order to become more robust. They can also be painted very easily.
