3D printing has made inroads into various industries as an efficient & trusted alternative to traditional methods of design & fabrication. Aviation & Aerospace industries are amongst the ones that stand to gain most from advantages 3D printing brings to New Product Development & Advanced Manufacturing. An area ripe for revolution & currently witnessing a metamorphosis, due to 3D printing technologies, is the design of the jet engine itself. When the first jet engine for civilian use was designed for mass production, humans had yet to land on the moon. However, since 2016, steady progress has been made towards a redesign & re-imagining of the traditional jet engine design.
