At Shanghai TCT Asia, DediBot from China showed off a shocking novelty – the prototype of the flying 3D printer Fly Elephant. Externally, the device looks like a standard unmanned aerial vehicle equipped with 6 rotary engines. However, an extruder is installed in the center of the bottom of the unusual drone, supplying material for 3D printing. The supply of plastic, concrete and other components of 3D printing. The accuracy of the printer is 0.1 mm. Fly Elephant developers hope that the symbiosis of a flying object and a printer will find application in the construction of complex structures. The software will allow you to create a whole team of flying \Fly Elephant will be especially useful when creating small building elements that cannot be built by an industrial printer designed to create powerful foundations and walls of a building. In addition, Fly Elephant can work in hard-to-reach places. In the future, manufacturers will see the use of Fly Elephant in space and under water. However, for the output of the printing drone to another element, the invention of a power source that increases the battery life will be required.
