At present, 3D printing technology has been widely used in creative design, innovative manufacturing and other fields. 3D printing technology is one of the most concerned new technologies in manufacturing industry. According to the manufacturing characteristics of UAV parts, this paper introduces the forming characteristics and technological process of 3D printing technology. According to the research status of foreign 3D printing technology. The necessity that 3D printing technology can be applied in UAV production and manufacturing is expounded. The technology is not very mature in terms of appearance support and UAV fuselage fabrication. Use 3D modeling to customize the UAV model, and use 3D printing technology to print and assemble the UAV fuselage model. According to the achievements of foreign 3D printing technology in manufacturing unmanned aerial vehicles, this paper analyzes the research and development focus of the integration of unmanned aerial vehicle technology and 3D printing technology, and deduces the development trend of 3D printing technology in unmanned aerial vehicle manufacturing.
