World first: Airbus unveils its 3D-printed mini aircraft – Daily Mail



3D printing technology is fast evolving, with companies now producing objects ranging from castles to lawn mowers. But until now, no one has been able to print a 3D airplane that flies. Now, European aerospace company, Airbus, has created a mini-plane, named Thor, which is the world’s first 3D printed aircraft. Thor is a windowless drone that weighs in at 46 pounds (21 kilograms) and is less than four metres (13 feet) in length. The mini plane was presented at the Berlin air show this week.
