Video: GE Builds Tiny 3-D Printed Jet Engine

送信時刻:
 
Engineers at General Electric have created a tiny jet engine using 3-D printing techniques that they say could rewrite the rules for how components inside commercial turbine engines are produced. The mini jet engine project was completed at GE Aviation's Additive Development Center outside Cincinnati. The lab focuses on developing additive manufacturing techniques that can produce complex 3-D structures by melting metal powders and laying them in super thin layers until something miraculous… (www.flyingmag.com) さらに...

Could it power a bicycle?Golf cart?
