Researchers at the Cornell Computational Synthesis Laboratory building a miniature ornithopter (that's a flying device that uses flapping wing motions for lift) had a problem: the wings were difficult to create due to their small size and mechanical requirements. The problem was solved by using 3D printing techniques to create the wings.
Project Members: Charlie Richter, Floris van Breugel, William Regan, Zhi Ern Teoh This project currently focuses on developing a ﬂapping-wing hovering insect using 3D printed wings and mechanical parts.
