Top 10 3D Printing Aerospace Stories from 2018

Article features research by Nikhil Gupta, professor, and Fei Chen, Ph.D. student, in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at NYU Tandon.
It’s been predicted that by 2021, 75% of new commercial and military aircraft will contain 3D printed parts, so it’s vitally important to find a way to ensure that 3D printed components are genuine, and not counterfeit. A group of researchers from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering came up with a way to protect part integrity by converting QR codes, bar codes, and other passive tags into 3D features that are hidden inside 3D printed objects.
