NAVAIR Successfully Tests First Flight-Critical 3D Printed Aircraft Component

NAVAIR Successfully Tests First Flight-Critical 3D Printed Aircraft Component

Since the 1990s, additive manufacturing has been a part of naval aviation, but it’s only recently that the technology has moved past strictly prototyping purposes. The US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) has been working towards making additive manufacturing a big part of their operations, starting with the creation of a 3D printed flight-critical component. On July […]
