Micro Quadcopter Designed In OpenSCAD


(*15*)Quadcopters are fantastical issues, and now are available an enormous number of flavours, from lithe featherweight racers to industrial-grade filming rigs price tens of 1000’s of greenbacks. The Beatle-1 from [masterdezign] is available in on the smaller scale, (*3*)and its frame used to be created completely in code.

(*15*)To create the Beatle-1, [masterdezign] used OpenSCAD, a 3-d modelling program that makes use of code moderately than visible equipment for generating geometry. Thus, with a chain of Boolean operations, extrusions and rotations, a fundamental light-weight quadcopter body is created in a handful of traces of textual content. Then, it’s only a easy process of 3-d printing the portions, wiring up four Olimex F1607 motors and hooking up a flight controller and the little drone is in a position for takeoff.

(*15*)The Beatle-1 serves as now not just a a laugh flying toy but in addition a really perfect instance of making use of OpenSCAD modelling tactics to real-world programs. Portions are to be had on Thingiverse for the ones wishing to roll their very own. 3-d published drone frames are common, and we’ve noticed a couple of round those portions ahead of. Video after the damage.
