PlexiDrone: Making Aerial Photography a Breeze
Another great example of what you can do with a professional grade 3D printer. DreamQii, of Toronto, ON, recently announced the release of their new UAV called the PlexiDrone. The drone viewed in this video footage was 3D printed with a Stratasys Dimension 1200es SST 3D Printer. The printer was utilized to support and expedite the product development process. By 3D printing durable, accurate parts, DreamQii was able to test for form, fit and function. As the video footplate can attest, the high performance parts printed enabled the team to test their design in real world conditions. The PlexiDrone means business and DreamQii has obtained multiple Special Flight Operating Certificates necessary for commercial flying.
Stratasys 3D Printers and Production based systems are an ideal solution to support high requirement applications. With the broadest set of engineering grade thermoplastics available, there are endless possibilities to design and manufacture custom one off components to affordably support custom applications for PlexiDrone. Cimetrix' Innovation Centre, located in Oshawa, ON, houses the broadest selection of Stratasys 3D Printing Technology. Cimetrix Solutions will support DreamQii with these efforts by making available their resources and 3D Printing and Production Systems capabilities.
Here are just a few of PlexiDrone's features:
- Ultrasonic sensors for obstacle avoidance and safety
- Snap together assembly, with no tools, in less than 45seconds
- Retractable landing gear, so you will never see them in the corners of your shots
- Swarming technology, to control multiple drones simultaneously by smartphone/tablet
- An aerodynamic backpack to carry aerial all your gear
