Interesting article on 3d Printing

Interesting for us, not just for the fact that 3d printing is useful for custom parts, but for the details on Woodside's partnership with Monash Uni to 3d print a new hybrid rocket motor with ProjectX....

There is a bit of this sort of thing going on for a few companies here. The interesting thing with this one is that it is an aerospike engine. Nice.

It did surprise me how long it took for this to happen here. It is a technology (3D printing engines) that quite a few companies are already flying or testing already overseas.

I have seen the AMAERO printed gas turbine (jet engine) which was impressive.
