3D-printed Micro Helicopter

Small project for the TUDelft elective Modelling and Prototyping of Free Form Shapes. A new body for a RF-controlled micro helicopter was designed using the t-splines plugin for Rhinoceros. The design contained integrated wheels and an rotatable light fitting. The final design was 3D-printed and assembled. Main goals were getting used to new 3D-software, understanding surface continuity and getting familiar with 3D-printing.

My personal goal for this project mainly was to learn to work with the T-Splines plugin for Rhino, making objects ready for 3D-printing and making something beautiful. Designing around something was harder than I thought, since you really have to take a lot of limitations into account. Hope you like the final result.
This project also resulted in a tutorial which can be found here
