Blackbird Drones reduce weight and improves performance with Custom 3D Printed Parts

MAR 04, 2018

The Blackbird is an intelligent, autonomous, networked, aerial security vehicle. FAA approved for nighttime and multi-drone operations, Nightingale Security ushers in the era of the rapid-response, robotic aerial security swarm.

This sophisticated security drone can autonomously patrol a property providing live thermal and RGB video feeds, as well as quickly respond to alarms or emergencies 24/7.

By applying Raise3D printers, Nightingale Security is able to produce highly customized parts that traditionally are difficult to mold and manufacture. With the capability of printing filaments with temperatures up to 300C, the right material can be chosen for each component: high strength for the frame and motor mounts, lightweight for the camera shroud, and flexible impact-absorbing material for the feet.
