When the concept of a ‘3D Printing Pen’ launched a little over a year ago, it was met with equal parts “this is just freakin’ awesome” and “what the heck should I do with this thing?”
Design visualization specialist, aerial cinematographer, Maker and all-around mad genius Matt Quest has created what is sure to go down as one of the best uses for a 3D printing pen to date: a quadcopter design.
Using a 3D Airpen, Matt has provided us with an awesome timelapse video that shows how he went from template to fully-functional prototype in 2.5 hours.
The Making Of and Testing:
The Final Product Presented in Turntable Glory:
As you can see from the first video, Matt starts with a simple template on blue tape (good call for a smooth non-stick surface) and then builds his form until it reaches the desired thickness…
…until he has reached the final product…
