3D Systems Figure 4 selected for US Air Force research

The Figure 4 3D printing platform from 3D Systems continues to find new applications. Under a new initiative announced today, US Air Force-sponsored research will look at how 3D printing can be used in the aircraft maintenance supply chain. Figure 4 is high accuracy and high speed modular 3D printing platform that permits a significant […]

$2.9M 3D printing contract recharges U.S. Air Force legacy planes

When it comes to 3D printing, the U.S. Air Force is taking things seriously. The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is a leading driver for developing the technology, and has recently employed the Synchrotron to investigate filler for 3D printed polymers. For years, bases around the country have also been trialling 3D printers for spare part […]

3D printing 10 times cheaper than machining for Moog Aircraft Group

FDM 3D printing proves better than traditional manufacturing in this latest case study from Moog Aircraft Group (NYSE:MOG.A) and leading Stratsys reseller SYS Systems. As a solution for spare parts and tooling, fused deposition modeling (FDM) is the 3D printing technology of choice for cutting costs and lead times at factories around the world. In recent […]

Draper puts aersol jet to test with 3D printed Bluetooth transceiver

Aerosol jet printing (AJP) is a technique for spraying metal-based inks developed by industrial manufacturer Optomec. Its ability to adhere to readymade surfaces and make multimaterial objects makes the technique highly desirable in the consumer electronics market, where demand for device prototypes is at an all time high. To assess AJP in practice, and better […]
