Boeing record in 3D printing

Boeing engineers and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory established the last new record size of objects printed entirely in a 3D printer. They created with ABS plastic element size 5.3 x 1.67 x 0.45 meter, which weighed 748 kilograms.

The World's Largest 3D Printer

This item, which prints it took less than 30 minutes, is a device used to produce aircraft wings of the 777 x series. Production of this move is next year, and printed just the device will be used to create composite plating.

Of course, the same record is important, but equally important is that the 3D printers found their place in the industry and in its so modern as aviation branch. Thus, you can expect that this technology will be hard going forward, and in a few years could live finally those printers that at home at low cost will create us any spatial object.
