Rolls Royce has decided to use 3D printing to help make its airplane engines. They are confident they can push the limits of additive manufacturing to provide the levels of precision required for aeronautical engineering.
The automaker will be using 3D printers to create metallic and ceramic parts for its commercial airplane engines. According to Dr. Wapenhans -head of technology:

Next up? 3D printing the entire car? Quite possible.
