This new video of a massive aircraft engine, the new GE9X, had me enthralled. As well as being neatly produced, it reveals that a wealth of parts are being produced by 3D printing.
I’m just fascinated by large structural things, be they buildings, bridges or boats. They don’t even have to start with a “B” either!
Most aircraft have 4 engines, or a quartet but maybe this engine is so powerful it only needs two engines per aircraft. Or maybe that’s a new style, three normal sized engines and one massive one. An engineering marvel.
