“Roswell Replica” Wooden Quadcopter

Tattoo artist and hobbyist woodworker Greg “Grease” Lehman built an alien-inspired wooden quadrotor based on the original foam-and-paper Roswell Quadrocopter. CNC-cut and -milled from ash, oak, walnut, and padauk, it looks heavy but it flies. Grab EPS files for cutting here.

“Crossfire”: 3D-Printed FPV Quadcopter

Mike Bristol is an air ambulance/bush pilot in Alaska who likes drones, FPV “video piloting,” and jumping out of planes. He built the most popular 3D-printed multirotor shared on Thingiverse (thingiverse.com/thing:32281) — and don’t miss his aerial video of BASE jumping off towers!

Laser-Cut MultiWii Quadcopter

Australian surfer and programmer Dylan Fogarty-MacDonald designed and built a hackable, easy-to-repair quadcopter from laser-cut plywood parts. No additional power tools are needed. Assembling it yourself brings the frame cost down to about $50 (not including motors and electronics). Get the DXF files and full instructions here.

Acrylic and Wood CNCed Hexacopter

Designer/fabber Jens Dyvik machined the entire structure of his hexacopter, including the propellers, which he CNCed out of lightweight wood. The body was laser-cut from acrylic, and then formed on an acrylic bender. There’s a second version in the works with wooden arms. Get the 2D and 3D design files from DyvikDesign here.

Anna Kaziunas France

Digital Fabrication Editor of Maker Media.

She runs the digital fabrication hardware testing for Make:. If you’re a vendor who would like to submit a tool for review (3D printer, CNC, laser cutter, fab software etc.), contact her directly at: anna [@] makermedia [dot] com.

She’s the section editor for Make: Skill Builder. Make: celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will. But — In order to really tweak and bend something, you need to understand it! If you’d like to write a tightly focused piece on a core maker skill in science / engineering / craft / art / architecture / robotics / fabrication etc. (whatever) that you’d like to teach to other makers — and have Make: work with you to illustrate for magazine publication — let her know!

She’s very interested in your ideas for practical digital fabrication focused books — anything that turns codes into things — hardware and software.

She’s also the Dean of the global Fab Academy program, the co-author of Getting Started with MakerBot, compiled the Make: 3D Printing book and ran the 2015 and 2014 3D Printer Shootout Weekend testing events.

She likes things that are computer-controlled, parametric, and open source — preferably all three.

Find her on her personal site, Twitter, , and Facebook.
