Additive manufacturing (AM), 3D printing, offers flexibility in manufacturing and can process a wide range of materials. In this project, polymers and composites are investigated to increase mechanical performance, and to reduce weight, cost, and lead time of candidate parts. Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) can greatly benefit from AM processes in aircraft engine components. In addition, AM can shorten the engine design cycle, and Research and Development (R&D) activities. This requires investigation of 3D printed parts and the impact of manufacturing parameters on final part properties, e.g.
