Video: 3D printing a fully-functional jet engine

While General Electric has been at the forefront of 3D printing jet engine parts, they aren’t the only ones using the technology for production. Japanese company id.arts was recently tasked with creating a working model of a two-axis rotary jet engine for well-known heavy equipment manufacturer, IHI Corporation. IHI specializes in producing turbochargers for cars, industrial machines, ships, suspension bridges, and aero-engines.

Watch the video below to experience first-hand how these mechanical parts can be printed on desktop FDM/FFF printers.
