Aerospace takes to additive manufacturing

Quote:
Additive takes off: Aerospace manufacturers are increasingly using 3D printing for functional aircraft components.
When the Flying Test Bed A380 aircraft from Airbus hits the skies later this year, it will mark a major milestone in aerospace manufacturing.
That is because the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engine powering the aircraft will be equipped with the largest civil aero-engine component ever built using 3D-printing techniques.
