World's first 3D printed plane 'Thor' unveiled in Berlin by Airbus'

Daily Mail - Science & tech

But until now, no one has been able to print a 3D airplane that flies. Now, European aerospace company, Airbus, has created a mini-plane, named Thor, which is the world's first 3D printed aircraft. The aircraft is completely 3D printed, except the electrical elements, which are built from a substance called polyamide. Both Airbus, and their rival, Boeing, are using 3D printing to make parts for some of their planes, such as the A350 and B787 Dreamliner. However, at only 46 pounds (21 kilograms) and less than four metres (13 feet) in length, Thor is the first time an entire aircraft has been 3D printed.

But Yusaku Maezawa said he respects and trusts his fellow billionaire and that he is looking forward to the trip.
