search and rescue 3D printing design contest

DJI’s Phantom 4 with its sleek body, integrated camera and long flying range make it the perfect search drone. Now you can use Shapeways 3D printing to turn it into the ultimate rescue drone.

Shapeways and DJI want you to push the drone boundaries and help save lives. Your challenge should you choose to accept it: design an attachment for a DJI Phantom 4 which can be used to help first responders better serve the public in their search and rescue efforts. In addition to the satisfaction of a job well done, the grand prize is a DJI phantom 4 and $1000 in Shapeways printing credits. The winning design will also be demonstrated at the New York City Makerfaire this October.
