NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - The Navy has approved the first metal part created by 3-D printing to be used on a ship.

The prototype drain strainer will be installed on the Norfolk-based USS Harry S. Truman early next year. It will be tested for one-year and then removed for analysis and inspection by Naval Sea Systems Command. https://wtkr.com/2018/10/15/navy-approves-first-3-d-printed-metal-piece-to-be-used-on-ship-will-be-tested-on-norfolk-aircraft-carrier/
