3D printing allows you to significantly shorten the time of the designing, testing and developing stages. That’s mainly due to the possibility of making and improving prototypes in-house in a matter of hours with the use of everyday resources. This functional model of a jet engine was 3D printed on three Zortrax M200s in roughly 8 hours but the overall print time when using one 3D printer shouldn’t take more than 15 hours. The prototype was printed in Z-ABS in red, pure black and pure white. 3D printing allowed to obtain a fully functional jet engine model in just a few hours without the need to outsource. The technology is an efficient way of prototyping an object or a mechanical part for testing before starting a production line and enables reduction of costs. The video was filmed by 3D Proshare.
