(3DPrintingIndustry)  FT Technologies, a British company specializing in the development and production of ultrasonic wind sensors, has reportedly launched its first drone-specific and 3D-printed device. The FT205 uses acoustic resonance technology to deliver environmental information about the wind speed, direction and temperature, bases on minute vibrations in the device, and an in-built compass.
Selective laser sintering (SLS) technology was used to make the 100g device. The FT205 sensor was 3D printed by fellow British company Graphite Additive Manufacturing (Graphite AM) a specialist service bureau and consultancy firm.
