3D Printing can and will change the aviation industry, companies such as Airbus and Boeing are already using 3D printing and if you fly in a plane in the next few years, you are statistically likely to be flying in one that contains 3D printed parts. Not only OEMs, and suppliers are applying 3D Printing, but airlines are seeing the potential and are investing in 3D printing capabilities within their own facilities.
