The next generation of aerospace technology demands next-generation production techniques, and additive manufacturing (AM) is chief among them. Aerospace manufacturing and 3D printing naturally go hand-in-hand: aerospace engineers need to build complex parts, often from expensive or difficult-to-machine materials; and with additive manufacturing, the complexity comes for free and the materials are extruded or fused, rather than having to be machined away.
The timing of this partnership between…
