With increasing limitations on wind tunnel test time, using your available time in the most productive way is key. Our additive manufacturing (AM) solutions make this possible in a multitude of ways, from high throughput part production and efficient post-processing, to increased sophistication of part geometries to include pressure tappings. The innovation of 3D Systems’ PIV-optimized stereolithography material, Accura® Composite PIV, further advances aerodynamic outcomes by enabling more accurate test results.
“We produce nearly 500 parts per week for wind tunnel testing. Due to Accura Composite PIV’s unique optical characteristics, we are now collecting more reliable data from our PIV system in the wind tunnel.”
