Stratasys and MakerBot Launch CubeSat Challenge for Aerospace Engineers and Students

Stratasys and MakerBot offer a range of 3D printers that enable engineers to develop, prototype and manufacture aerospace parts. Stratasys recently announced that Airbus has produced more than 1000 flight parts on their Stratasys FDM 3D Production Systems for use on A350 XWB aircraft. MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers are used in the aerospace industry too. Engineers at Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Technology Center, in Palo Alto, CA, for example, used 3D-printed models to develop parts for NIRCam, an essential optical instrument for the James Webb Space Telescope, which is set to launch in 2018.

Recognizing the need to develop custom solutions for high requirements markets, Stratasys, the world leader in Additive Manufacturing, formed Vertical Solutions teams for key industries. Drawing top technical and management talent from those key industries, Stratasys built teams that speak the language and understand the core challenges of their respective markets. The Aerospace Vertical Solutions Team is sponsoring the Additive CubeSat Challenge, with collaboration from our GrabCAD, Makerbot and Stratasys Direct Manufacturing colleagues.
