Sogeclair Believes 3D Printed Casting Patterns are the Key to the Airplane Door of the Future

Sogeclair Believes 3D Printed Casting Patterns are the Key to the Airplane Door of the Future

Flying can be a sublime experience, especially when the plane’s design has been carefully considered and executed. Despite our human instinct to believe that supremely heavy objects such as planes or ships should neither fly nor float, their engineering allows them to do so and to the end user, it can seem nearly effortless. The […]
