3D printing prototypes is helping keep NATO requirements cost effective

3D printers are also being used to help upgrade Soviet-type Su-22 and MiG-29 fighter jets owned by the Armed Forces of the Republic of Poland, allowing for cost effective conformity with NATO requirements.

Wojskowe Zakłady Lotnicze (WZL) Nr 2 S.A, one of Poland’s largest aviation companies, is overhauling and modernising the Su-22 and MiG-29 aircraft, and is using 3D printed parts prior to the final CAD modelling to verify they fit with the existing geometry of the aircraft.

The rapid prototyping shows any discrepancies between the CAD geometry delivered by the manufacturer and the physical geometry of the planes in the hangar, proving to be the fastest way to dispel any doubts before parts are built or shipped.

For Onshape, the 3Dconnexion drivers will work on Windows systems and use Chrome or Firefox browsers.

Five months on from its highly anticipated debut, Onshape has announced that its full-cloud 3D CAD system is now available to use on devices running Android.

Already available on Apple iPhones and iPads, and through a web browser on Mac, Windows, and Linux, adding Android users to the fold completes the mobile set.

The team behind the cloud CAD product are clear that the mobile app is not intended to replace Onshape’s use on desktops and laptops – it is meant to expand a CAD user’s access to their work outside the home or office.
