The six rotor Fly Elephant with the three-dimensional printing Open-ended Additive Manufacturing (OAM), which can output through a special extruder plyboy material for three-dimensional printing. In addition, the device is quite accurate and allows the printing accuracy of 0.1 mm.

In Addition, a flying 3D printer can be used in conjunction with other such devices. Roy such printers can create a single part from different materials. While the advantage of this approach is that the size of the final product is not limited work space as most desktop 3D printers.

Have a drone and a significant drawback: low duration of batteries. But the company DediBot plans to equip the device with wireless charging technology.
