The U.S. Air Force announced its first use of certified replacement aircraft parts made by a 3D industrial printer on Monday. The Stratasys F900 3D printer is capable of printing plastic parts up to 36-by-24-by-36 inches, using Ultem 9085, a flame-retardant high-performance thermoplastic regarded as more flexible, dense and stronger than typical plastic.
