3D printing — is there nothing it can’t do?

Well, it can print a Platinum Thruster Chamber that can survive test firings.

“The firings included a single burn of 32 minutes, during which a maximum throat temperature of 1253°C was attained.

“It demonstrates that performance comparable to a conventional thruster can be obtained through 3D printing.”

I’ll say. Congrats to Airbus!
