Aerial 3D printing using modular chunks

This paper introduces a new aerial 3D printing concept that strategically breaks down 3D models into smaller, modular chunks for distributed printing by teams of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Through experimental emulation of the printing process, the feasibility and motion planning for this pioneering approach is assessed, identifying challenges to make this become reality.
