GE has begun to enact its plans for the mass production of its 3D printed jet engine fuel nozzles. The company announced plans to outfit its Auburn, Alabama facility for the high volume 3D printing of its LEAP engine parts. Through the use of intricate, fuel-efficient design that can only be manufactured by 3D printing, the nozzles are predicted to cut fuel costs and carbon emissions by 15%.
