Aerospace is an industry at the bleeding edge of engineering where rapid and accurate prototyping and production at reduced cost are key to success and survival for a business.
3D printing and scanning is enabling the aerospace industry to not only rapidly produce prototypes and simplify reverse engineering to reproduce products no longer being manufactured, it’s going the step further and simplifying manufacturing of parts, faster, better and more cost effective.
Our feature article below illustrates how NASA has employed 3D technologies to keep their assets, and astronauts, safe in-flight. Although the system hasn’t been put to the test it’s able to help identify any damage and aid with repair.

Feature: Space Shuttle Safety at NASA
…One of the biggest areas of improvement is using Geomagic software to detect, assess and repair, if necessary, tile damage caused by foam particles dislodged from the shuttle and other flying debris…
…Geomagic Studio software provides the central technologies for NASA’s implementation. The software is used by major auto, aerospace and consumer product manufacturers worldwide to digitally recreate complex physical objects for mass customization, more accurate analysis and simulation, and digital inventory. NASA uses Geomagic Studio to automatically process 3D data collected from a scanner while the shuttle is in flight.
