NTU students behind NTU Venture 9 design on race day (via NTU) While some students are busy doing keg-stands, others are designing the first-ever solar-powered 3D-printed racecar. That’s what students at the Nanyang Technological University spent the past year doing, and it paid off. The record-breaking solar race car won first place in two categories at Shell’s Eco Marathon Asia last weekend.   The initial project was simple. Sixteen undergraduate engineering students from ...
Aerojet Rocketdyne, has successfully conducted a series of hot-fire tests of key additively manufactured components for its AR1 booster engine. The testing of the main injector elements at its Sacramento facility represents an important milestone in the development of the company’s AR1 engine and keeps it on track toward having a certified engine in production in 2019.   Aerojet Rocketdyne completed hot-fire testing (above) of a single-element main injector for the AR1 rocket engin ...
3D printed compressor stators and synch ring brackets for the PW1500G (above) will power the new Bombardier CS series of commercial airliners (below)   Additive manufacturing, also known as three-dimensional (3D) printing can be used to build parts and products of almost any shape or geometry, produced from a 3D model or other electronic data source. But while 3D printing now is more widely accepted as a technology than ever before, the core competencies of its users have been in p ...
