Navy Takes 3D Printer to Sea During RIMPAC Exercise


Recommended Posts

OAHU, Hawaii - The U.S. Navy-led Rim of the Pacific exercise is continuing in Southern California and Hawaii with 26 nations conducting naval, aerial and amphibious exercises to test their capabilities and interoperability. One ship is conducting a different test during RIMPAC — it is experimenting with 3D printing technology.

The USS Essex is the first Navy ship to sail with a 3D printer on board, and crew members are putting the Xerox ElemX liquid metal printer through its paces.
