sUAS News endorses AM Production for UAVs

04 January 2017 ...

One of the leading UAV news portals sUAS News had endorsed the 3D Printing by AM (additive manufacturing) production of UAVs for commercial use.

Tiaan Roux, the publication’s editor says “I was wrong about 3D printed drones” and he cites the UAV which 3T RPD produced for Southampton University as the beginning of AM (additive manufacturing) production for drones and UAVs. He claims that the technology has a number of advantages for the UAV industry and will allow entrepreneurs to “create a business” with lower capital needs and shorter production lines.


3T RPD has considerable experience in AM Production for the aviation industry and of course printed the very first working AM Production UAV for Southampton University. It is good to see that industry publications are endorsing the process and you can read the full article here.

Our own UAV, manufactured for the University of Southampton is still in service and you can see how it is being used today here.
