Rotor DR1 Takes Drone-Based Web Series to the Big Screen & Plans to Release 3D Printed Drones for Fans

Science fiction television series are all the hit nowadays, with shows like The Walking Dead becoming world-wide phenomena. It’s just something about science fiction that makes us think and wonder what the world could be like if science were to modify world around us. People like science fiction because, deep down, part of them believes that what they are reading about or watching on TV isn’t that far from becoming a reality.

3D printed drones deliver sobering truths

Socially conscious artist chooses Mcor’s environmentally friendly 3D printing technology for multimedia statement

“I have a passion for paper. And I was really interested in Mcor’s environmental aspects – its low-cost, environmentally friendly materials.”

– Joseph DeLappe, Artist & Digital Media Professor, University of Nevada

The more advanced our defense technology becomes, says Joseph DeLappe, the further removed we are from the bloodshed it creates. It’s come to the point, he says, that a country like the United States, operating from a bunker in the Nevada desert, can remotely bomb targets in the Middle East using astonishingly antiseptic killing technology – drones.

Zortrax 3D Prints Lifeguard Drone to Save Castaways, Assisting AeroAtena in „Drones for Good“ Competition

When one considers the fumbling and chaos that ensued as Amelia Earhart’s plane lost contact over the South Pacific, leaving the world to radio silence and heartbroken speculation, it’s interesting to ponder a modern-day scenario featuring 3D printed drones which would lessen one’s chances of dying as a castaway. If you live in a coastal location, you probably read the weekly headlines regarding mishaps at sea, as well as men gone overboard — with some outcomes better than others.

Wildlife Conservation UAV Challenge uses 3D printed drones to save endangered animals

Unmanned Aarial Vehicles (UAVs), most commonly referred to as drones, have been making headlines recently due to their controversial use by the U.S. Military. However, there is another war being waged that could significantly benefit from UAVs and 3D printing technology.

Can 3-D Printed Drones Help Save Wildlife?

In South Africa’s Kruger National Park and throughout much of Africa, rhino and elephant numbers are declining at a rapid rate, because of poachers. Authorities have limited resources to catch poachers and disrupt the illegal wildlife trade, and drones could help them. A worldwide competition, the Wildlife Conservation UAV Challenge, encourages the development of cheaper, easier-to-use drones, with the goal of detecting and deterring poachers before they strike.

Biodegradable drone made out of fungus and bacteria melts away when it crashes

Drones and 3D printing are a cake and ice cream; a wonderful combination. Not only are quadcopters and drones exceptionally fun toys to mess around with, they can also be as difficult to build and high-tech as you’d like. Just in the last few weeks, we’ve seen examples of high-tech marvels of engineering, like the compact and sturdy Backcountry Drone, and the Ambulance Drone, but also of do-it yourself 3D printed drone that you can construct with your own desktop printer.

BAE Systems Unveils Concepts of On-Board Aircraft 3D Printers Able to Print Incredible UAVs During a Mission

Drones and 3D Printing. They go together like mashed potatoes and gravy. Well maybe not quite as well, but without 3D printers, the entire drone community would certainly be a lot more bland. BAE Systems, a British multinational defense, security and aerospace company has released details on some of their future aircraft technologies. The time table set is approximately 25 years from now, in the year 2040.

Future Concepts – On-board 3D Printing

Scientists and engineers at BAE Systems have lifted the lid on some futuristic technologies that could be incorporated in military and civil aircraft of 2040 or even earlier.

Smaller unmanned aircraft — or UAVs — are created by super high-tech on-board 3D printers, via Additive Layer Manufacturing and robotic assembly techniques. The 3D printers respond to data fed to them by a remote control room where a human commander decides what should be produced.

The UAVs are best suited to each scenario — be it a group of wide-winged aircraft for protracted or enduring surveillance — or rotary-winged UAVs to rescue single civilians or soldiers from dangerous situations. After use the UAVs could render themselves useless through dissolving circuit boards or they might safely land in a recoverable position if re-use was required.

This creates the ultimate adaptable taskforce, with a lead aircraft able to enter any unknown scenario and quickly manufacture an effective toolset for any task.

How the Future of War (and Flying) Could Be Swarms of 3D-Printed Drones

The U.S. military has a problem. It takes too long to acquire new fighting machines.

In 1983, top-brass decided that they needed a new fighter jet to maintain a tactical edge in the Cold War threat environment. The resulting aircraft, the F-22 Raptor, which was specifically designed for use in a central European front, was the most technologically advanced fighter ever created. Those Soviets won’t stand a chance, the brass must have thought. Except that the first Raptor wasn’t delivered until 2005, 22 years and $39 billion after the program was conceived, and 14 years after the fall of the Soviet Union.

In war, nobody—least of all the U.S.—wants to be the kid who still uses a Discman when everyone else has iPods. 22 years is too long to develop new platforms and, as the military faces budget cuts, it’s too costly. “All the technologies conceived at the fall of the Berlin Wall are now being used in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Ben FitzGerald, a Senior Fellow at the D.C. defense think-tank Center for a New American Security.

FitzGerald, an affable Australian with a magnificent copper-colored beard—and a rising star in future war strategy circles—thinks he has a solution: it involves 3-D printing, robotic assembly lines, and drones. A lot of them.
