Hello everyone, i am Niko, part of RoboSap team, and today i will show you how to make simple desktop plane. It is 3D printed model of plane that fly in front of your fan or any device which blows the air.

It is very light and that therefore very cheap. It takes about 25 min to print it and 5 minutes to assemble it.

  • Part 1 (1)
  • Part 2 (2)
  • Part 3 (1)
  • Part 3 (1)

Step 2: Assembly

Attach Part 1 on main wing.

Step 3: Assembly

Add part 1 next to part 2.

Step 4: Assembly

Add Part 2 on wing, so Part 1 is in the middle.

Step 5: Assembly

If parts wont stay together, you can glue them.
