BigRep and Etihad to define aerospace additive manufacturing roadmap

Large scale industrial additive manufacturing 3D printer provider BigRep is teaming up with Etihad Airways Engineering to develop an additive manufacturing roadmap for the aerospace industry. The plan will focus on ways to develop 3D printing processes and standards for the production of aircraft interiors. Berhard Randerath, Vice President of Engineering, Design & Innovation at Etihad […]

Eviation & Stratasys Break New Grounds in Electric Aircraft Manufacturing

There are very few technologies as crucial to modern innovation as the aircraft. The problem is that planes are expensive, fuel intensive and require complex design work. Naturally, companies have been trying to solve each of these issues with limited success. Eviation and Stratasys appear to have made breakthroughs that would overturn the industry. Electric […]
