Bionic Aircraft Collaborative Research Project Works to Increase the Efficiency of Aviation Resources through Additive Manufacturing

3D printing and 3D scanning technologies have been making major headway into aviation recently, and these uses are only set to expand. We have seen 3D printed airplanes before, used in the military, and also with some pretty cool unmanned aircraft. There are 3D printed airplane components, 3D scanning has been used to recreate historic […]

Airbus Officially Unveils Thor, the Fully 3D Printed Plane that Flies Beautifully

Airbus Officially Unveils Thor, the Fully 3D Printed Plane that Flies Beautifully

The first 3D printed plane is making its debut, and nope, it’s not another one that’s been made in miniature by a hobbyist. And while it’s not full-scale, it’s certainly presenting a huge milestone to the world as a 13-foot flying drone. It’s also the perfect example of how a company like Airbus is able […]

Aurora Flight Sciences Demonstrates Capabilities of Their 3D Printed, Hovering Aircraft

Aurora Flight Sciences Demonstrates Capabilities of Their 3D Printed, Hovering Aircraft

There are pros and cons to both helicopters and airplanes. For many military applications, helicopters have obvious advantages in that they can land and take off from anywhere without needing a runway. However, the speed of helicopters can’t compare with the speed of jets, and that can be a significant liability in terms of mission length […]

3D Printed Pilotless Airplane Successfully Tested Over Icy Antarctic Waters

3D Printed Pilotless Airplane Successfully Tested Over Icy Antarctic Waters

It’s finally here – the world’s first 3D printed airplane. Don’t go rushing off to book a flight, though, because the Southampton University Laser-Sintered Aircraft (SULSA) is only 3kg. It could perhaps carry a squirrel, but that’s about it. SULSA was designed for a much more critical purpose than chauffeuring rodents around the skies, however. Last […]

This Amazing 3D Printed Winged UAV Suffers Devastating Crash

We are always striving to cover the many amazing uses of 3D printing technology. In doing so, we have a tendency to report on the successful flights of various 3D printed drones and other UAVs. 3D printing is a technology that will eventually allow just about anyone to create their own unique aerial vehicles. While […]

From a Shelby Cobra to a Fiat 500, Maurizio Casella's Detailed 3D Printed Models are Breathtaking

From a Shelby Cobra to a Fiat 500, Maurizio Casella's Detailed 3D Printed Models are Breathtaking

Change is apparently something that Maurizio Casella of Egypt is quite fond of. After all, he had been working doing advertising in Milan, Italy since the early 1980s, before he decided to get up and move to Egypt about 15 years ago in order to “follow his inner passion”. At the time, that passion was […]

EXCLUSIVE: Local Motors to 3D Print Several Models of Cars: Boats & Planes Next?

“Why would we stop at cars when we can do things that need structure, other kinds of vehicles…. Boats, planes, satellites.” – Local Motors CEO Jay Rogers to 3DPrint.com I’ll be honest, when Local Motors announced earlier this year that they soon would be 3D printing an entire car within a span of just 6 […]

British Designer Uses 3Doodler, 3D Printing Pen to Build Remote Control Airplane and Car

British Designer Uses 3Doodler, 3D Printing Pen to Build Remote Control Airplane and Car

When the world’s very first 3D printing pen, the 3Doodler raised over $2.3 million on Kickstarter in March of 2013, I didn’t really know what to think. My first thoughts were that someone just raised $2.3 million to create a glorified hot glue gun, but after trying out the device, it was actually quite fun […]

Florea, Designer of the 3D Printed House & Gran Torino, Has More Up His Sleeve - Is a Submarine Next?

Ioan Florea is becoming quite the celebrity lately. He is probably most famous for his 3D printed liquid metal Ford Gran Torino, which was recently on display at the 2014 New York Auto Show. It is a masterpiece, one that Florea tells us took 150 prototypes to create. By prototypes, Florea is referring to the mold-like […]
