Complex 3D-printed rocket engine components have been successfully tested by NASA at its Marshall Space Flight Center located in Huntsville, Alabama.

Using 3D printing, an additive manufacturing technique, NASA engineers have designed highly intricate and complex rocket engine injector components. NASA engineers designed each component and fed the resulting data into the 3D printer’s computer. The printer then created each part by building the de...
