Abstract

The phenomenal growth in three-dimensional printing technology has the potential of ushering in the next wave of industrial revolution. As part of an advanced project design conducted at the Aerospace Engineering of the University of New South, the concept of a printable unmanned aerial vehicle was explored. A subsequent small scale test model was manufactured using three dimensional printing technology for wind tunnel testing and validation. The exercise demonstrates the huge potential of such printing technology in future aircraft designs.
