Aerojet's 3D Printed Rocket Engine

Aerojet Rocketdyne successfully tests engine, 3D printed in just three parts, 26 June 2014

This week, Aerojet Rocketdyne, a GenCorp company, announced that it has successfully completed a series of hot-fire tests on a Bantam demonstration engine built entirely with 3D printing. This particular liquid oxygen/kerosene engine, dubbed "Baby Bantam" (because it is at the lower end of the Bantam engine family thrust range), has a thrust of 5,000 pounds.
