DJI team up with Shapeways for ‘search + rescue’ competition #3DPrinting #3DThursday

Shapeways Renovatio Drone by LC Design

Via Develop 3D

Drone-making supremos DJI have launched a new design competition with online 3D printing bureau Shapeways for its latest competition: to create a 3D printed accessory to attach to Phantom drone that can aid first responders in their search and rescue efforts.

Shape ways suggests that by adding 3D printed accessories that can improve the drone’s visibility, carry payloads and land on water, first responders could cover more area, cutting response times while monitoring hard to navigate waters. “More lives would be saved, and fewer first responders put at risk, all thanks to your 3D printed drone modification,” explained a Shapeways spokesperson at the launch.

The winning entrant will receive a DJI Phantom 4 and $1,000 in Shapeways 3D printing credit, while three runners up will receive $500 in Shapeways credit.
