US Air Force Testing 3D Printed Titanium Spare Bracket On F-22 Fighter Aircraft

US Air Force Testing 3D Printed Titanium Spare Bracket On F-22 Fighter Aircraft

Over the years, the US Air Force has turned to 3D printing numerous times, from fabricating parts for fighter jets and other aircraft components to saving thousands – even millions – of dollars by using 3D printing to make cup handles and modify standard-issue gas masks. The technology can help create new things, and can also be used […]

German Armed Forces Use 3D Printing to Redesign an Obsolete Part

The German Armed Forces are working on using 3D printing directly in the field, as described in a study entitled “Characteristics of a metal additive manufacturing process for the production of spare parts.” The plan is to re-engineer machine parts that get worn out during deployment, create a printable file, and send it back to […]

US Army Successfully Tests 3D Printed Grenade Launcher with 3D Printed Grenades

US Army Successfully Tests 3D Printed Grenade Launcher with 3D Printed Grenades

A couple years ago, a program responsible for training workers on weapon removal, like land mines and grenades, utilized 3D printing kits as teaching aids. Around the same time, some clever kids developed a 3D printed stink grenade. But now, the US Army is introducing a 3D printed grenade launcher, complete with 3D printed grenades, that […]
