Russia to Debut 3D Printed Armata Tank
Moscow (Sputnik) Feb 07, 2016
Russian Defense has been widely using the method of creating physical objects in a digital 3D model, or if simply said, 3D printing. The development of solid objects made of polymer materials at the company 'Electromashina', which is a part of 'Uralvagonzavod' corporation, has been underway for some time now. In the summer of 2015, the industrial 3D-printer was introduced, which was designed to create prototypes and low-volume parts. "The 3D-printer helps to speed up the trial production. Wh ... read more
