Don’t just take our word for it

From the Miami Herald, “The future in 3D printing: New innovations harness older technology”, published on May 30, 2015:

But perhaps on 3DChimera’s more interesting clients is that of Aeronautical Engineers of Doral.

In February, they hired 3DChimera to scan the fuselage of a Boeing 737-800 jet.

“We saved hours and hours and hours,” says Ricardo Fernandez, engineering manager at Aeronautical Engineers. “Typically, if we are doing a design by taking 2D drawings and scaling them up and down, you’ve got to play with the numbers, we’re talking a month or two of work that we cut down by having a scan of the aircraft.”

It took about 10 hours to scan the fuselage and a couple of weeks to complete the computerized model, Fernandez says. But it was worth it, he adds, explaining that the job cost his company roughly half of the $7,000 to $10,000 cost he anticipated if they did the work in-house.
