NASA, Industry Test Additively Manufactured Rocket Engine Injector

English: Force diagram for rocket engine thrust.

NASA cuts manufacturing time from 1 year to 4 months and cuts costs by 70%.

NASA and Aerojet Rocketdyne designed and fabricated a key part for a rocket engine with a 3D printer, shaving six months and 70 percent off the cost of production. A successful test of the component, a rocket injector assembly that delivers liquid oxygen and hydrogen into the engine’s combustion chamber, may lead to more efficient manufacturing in the future.
