    Appreciation for sharing the information!

    was wondering about if more revenue would come from Aerospace...I found from FastEBM:

    "It has been identified that airframe production requires a large number of brackets of many different designs ( >1200 in an Airbus A380). These are currently machined from aluminium and titanium billet, plate or forgings with extremely high wastage of material, which in the case of titanium alloys is expensive and contains scarce elements such as vanadium. With the right production rate, AM could supply into this market competitively, and reduce wastage by giving a yield of 95% rather than the current 10% (buy-to-fly ratio of 10:1)."

    It's really great to have that answered. Thank you for the article.
