Sorry I quoted the wrong person, was ment to be in reply about fires and procedures from air crew, not really related to the reasons why of the ban.

Here's a link suggesting the USN Seal raid in Yemen may be the reason for the new portablel device ban from certain airlines in the ME.

some of these things are already starting to appear as mainstream within niche entities, (3D parts ad-hoc manufacturing springs to mind)

my own view is that for ad-hoc 3D printing to become more mainstream for parts manufacturing then that requires a corresponding drop in 3D scanning costs and portability

Yep 3D printing is coming up I leaps and bounds and some of the more unusual things doing with it.

wooki and I were both involved with 3D printing with a titanium based ceramic. a number of years ago. at that stage australia via CSIRO were leading the world in symmetrical and complex printing of shapes. a few years later they were able to print out a 3D sintered metal dragon for a sick girl who loved dragons - now they are commercially printing out titanium based body parts. I know of only one other country that can do this

once they bring down the cost of 3D scanning and make it easier to integrate that into 3D printing then the gates will open up

eg the USN is looking at 3D printing spare parts for out of production components

Just curious, how would these 3D printed spare parts perform if they are components that need to undergo high stress? Since it is additive manufacturing, wouldn't the parts fall short in quality?

I am assuming that they are components that aren't under critical failure conditions.

eg you can print off in plastic, sintered metal and titanium ceramic - all have different load and sheer tolerances

That may well be, but since those parts haven't undergone an engineering analysis, and aren't PMA you would need either a field approval, an STC or change your registration to experimental in order to be legal in the USA. Until the FAA changes its rules (along with foreign goverment's similar agencies) making your own parts could be trouble, rendering your plane unairworthy.

au contraire

when we forming up parts on the printer they were subjected to sheer and impact tests

ie the same tests that would be done against a billet artifact

(and I am talking about maritime and land warfare applications specifically)

I see. I was referring to general aviation applications. The FAA as ridged rules regarding replacement parts on certified aircraft. Berm there with them more than once with my plane.

Wrong with the jet itself or with the article commenting on it?

The jet itself, their PhtoShop guy needs lessons from the F/A -37 Talon designer.
