The Bukobot Fly was originally made to test out some features of my Bukobot 3D printer prototype and experiment with thin layers. Then I got curious to see if I can actually make it fly..and I did!
First 3D printable hand glider?
Not sure if it’s the first flying 3D printable mini airplane, but I couldn’t find one anywhere that wasn’t small enough to fit on 8×8 platform and didn’t require motors.
The Bukobot Fly has a 9″ wingspan and 0.4mm thick wings.
