How strong is the finished product?
And one more. We’ll like fly in a plane powered with an engine made from 3D printed parts soon. https://www.3dprintingmedia.network/gex9-largest-3d-printed-jet-engine-ever-now-flying/
Read the article. It’s stronger and lighter than machined metal.
How much would a home 3d printer cost?
You could make all sorts of stuff if you could downloaded designs and enter them into the printer.
GE engineers could go so big because they designed fan blades and the fan case from the most advanced carbon fiber composites,
Speaking of GE turbines, I saw a clip of the GE test 747 with two huge engines. They are going to be on future 777s.
Now focus: the engine’s diameter is only 30 some centimeters smaller than diameter of a 737.
Yeah, you read that right.
Here is a link, but not the one I saw initially.
My buddy got one for 200
What about the software? Also, I wonder how easy it is to run it if you don’t know anything about computers and such
It’s a pain in the dick. We had to watch tutorials to set the fucker up.
It’s pretty cool once it’s all set up. He is doing some Indy sci fi filming so he uses the printer to print small scale pieces to create models for a set.
Did he have to code the models or was the design availability to ener into the printer?
