3D printing in the cabin – examining possibilities with Stratasys

Replacement parts of an aircraft cabin can be expensive. They can get even more expensive when you’re needing only a few of them or a very customised component to the cabin. This is where a technology like 3D printing can help and in the example we’re going to look at – additive based printing.

So how can this help in the cabin? I talked to Stratasys at AIX, and this seat take-apart shows some of the possibilities 3D printing can be a robust technology, and when used with a compliant material – it gives a strong and durable product that can […]
