Awesome Ultimaker printed Quadcopter!

A while ago Taylor Alexander 3D printed fully functionaly rotor blades on his Ultimaker for his RC-helicopter. This time, another amazing accomplishment was made, which is supplementary… the “PL1Q Vampire, the 3d printed quadcopter”. Its total weight is just 231.6 g at it is pretty strong, printed out of PLA plastic.

The files for this ‘thing’ can be downloaded here!


Make sure to watch Peter’s other video’s too.


Do you know why I’m so excited about what we’re doing with Ultimaker?!

These kinds of responses REALLY get me up early in the morning and enjoy the long ride to our new Ultimaking Headquarters:

RepRap has profoundly changed my life. With Ultimaker, the team and I want to give access to this same experience to as many people around the world as we can! After PC’s have changed our lives so pervasively, the power of Personal Fabrication has just been unleashed!

Thanks, Peter from Sweden! You made my day!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
