Metal 3D Printing for a Two-Mirror Telescope by Manuel Michiels
At this talk, attendees heard how Metal 3D Printing was applied to manufacture an optical system to be used in aerospace. We presented the main cost drivers of metal AM and which operations can be tuned to lower costs. Visitors also learned how large parts can be manufactured within tolerance by using simulation and creating a digital connection to CNC.
