3D Printed Flying Propeller Toy

By on April 6, 2012 Comments

One of our members, Dennis Nikolaidis of Animusing Productions, used his superb 3D modeling and design skills to create a model of a propeller toy that he had engineered.

It was then printed on one of our 3D printers, assembled, and tested right here at the Fablocker space.

It worked on it's maiden flight! However, Dennis has already identified several ways to make improvements.

That's the great thing about rapid prototyping technology such as RepRap printers--you can quickly and cheaply print out your products, see how well the design worked, make improvements and reprint for further testing.

Here is another video of more testing:
