Aerospace industry leaders have long been early adopters of 3D printing technology from 3D Systems. From rapid prototyping and wind tunnel models to the first performance, end-use parts manufacturing, these customers have pushed the envelope of 3D printing. Today, the application of fab-grade 3D printers in aerospace is redefining mass-production of complex parts, enabling engineers to design for ultimate performance and delivery of higher accuracy, greater fidelity, functional and conformal parts while cutting production time dramatically and improving fuel savings to the tune of millions of dollars per airframe.

"For almost three decades our 3D printers have been at the forefront of innovation in aerospace. Today's fab-grade 3D printers offer a revolution in performance, eliminating the constraints of design for manufacturing and introducing the freedom to design for optimum performance, fuel efficiency and competitive advantage," said Chuck Hull, Chief Technology Officer, 3DS. "We are extremely proud of our work with industry leaders and committed to helping them achieve their bold sustainability and performance targets."
