Hi Friends, I am writing this article. This is Mr. GP Cox’s nice suggestion, the article in Stars and stripes about 3-D printing used in the maintenance of a Lockheed-Martin F-22″.
Thank you to Mr. GP Cox:)

According to Rick Ambrose, Lockheed Martin Space executive vice president, “Our largest 3-D printed parts to date show we’re committed to a future where we produce satellites twice as fast and at half the cost. And we’re pushing forward for even better results. For example, we shaved off 87 percent of the schedule to build the domes, reducing the total delivery timeline from two years to three months.”

Lockheed Martin’s largest 3D-printed spacecraft

Posted on Updated on

According to Lockheed Martin Space executive vice president Rick Ambrose,” Lockheed Martin’s titanium domes are the largest 3D-printed spacecraft parts.
Lockheed Martin has created its largest piece. This titanium domes to cover the fuel tanks of the satellites. The use of additive manufacturing can help satellites assemble faster and with less wasted materials.
