GE awarded $9M to speed up development of naval parts with 3D printing and digital twins

A new $9 million GE program will develop a digital platform for 3D printing replacement naval parts. GE and its partners will use data-based methods to create "digital twins" of parts on various naval assets, which can be 3D printed in case the parts need to be replaced. via 3ders.org, http://www.3ders.org/articles/20180503-ge-awarded-9m-to-speed-up-development-of-naval-parts-with-3d-printing-digital-twins.html
