How Research with Figure 4 3D Printing Will Help US Air Force Replace Obsolete Parts

UDRI (University of Dayton Research Institute) is taking research forward with America Makes, 3D Systems and the US Air Force to take additive manufacturing into the replacement of hard-to-build parts to sustain aging military aircraft. Using Creaform 3D scanning and 3D Systems software, and taking that data into SOLIDWORKS enables the production of new designs in hours. The Figure 4 Production platform and materials allows for new inventory of parts to be delivered in days. Unprecedented speed and scalability through an improved digital workflow with 3D Systems.
