NASA alloy verified for 3D printing

NASA’s GRX-810 alloy can now be used with 3D System’s direct metal printing (DMP) system, the company said.

The alloy has improved strength and resistance to extreme temperatures, making it suitable for aerospace applications such as rocket engines, turbine blades, and exhaust nozzle components, 3D Systems said.

"The successful verification of the reported NASA GRX-810 properties is a testament to the incredible potential of this new super alloy, not only in its performance but in its capability to be produced repeatably," said Dr Michael Shepard, vice president at 3D Systems.
