Ryan Callahan is a fan of IC3D 3mm ABS filament, and IC3D is a fan of the San Diego State University Rocket Program. Callan, Design Lead on the program, reached out to us recently to let us know how 3D printing helps his team throughout their design process.
A notable application of 3D printing is our thrust vectoring gimbal prototype. This is a huge project we are taking on in the future and 3D printing makes it super convenient for us to throw together proof-of-concept systems on the fly. I can’t describe how much of an advantage it is to be able to model physical systems like this for pennies on the dollar.Read More
