This paper describes the design and manufacture of a Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV) using the StratasysTM 3D Rapid Prototyping (RP) machine. The main motivation for this work is to demonstrate the rapid product development capabilities of the machine. The polymeric material used in this process is Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS). Its superior properties allow the MUAV structure to be built accurately to design specifications. The advantage of this approach is the shorter time required for design, fabrication and deployment.
