Imagine being able to 3D print your own functioning vehicle. Now, imagine if that vehicle could fly you across the country, across the world perhaps. The first steps to being able to print your own airplane have been taken by aerospace hobbyists using an Object Connex500 3D printer. Although the airplane is just a model with a 120cm wing span, this particular application has opened doors for the rest of the industry. We now have the tools to manifest from our imagination directly, what comes next will be a quantum leap in aerospace manufacturing and design, all thanks to RapidMade.
