Has NASA tested a rocket engine combustion chamber made with a 3D printer? If not, tell how it was. ⠀
A prototype was created to reduce the cost of such parts. Inside, the model is coated with copper and a special nickel alloy so that the part withstands shock and high temperatures.
How to make the camera:
- first, the inner part and the cooling integrated channels through which the fuel flows were made;
- a copper camera was printed on a 3D printer in accordance with laser selective melting technology;
- and at the end they installed a nickel plate on top.
The tests were successful, which inspired the creators.
