The 1,650 lb. apparatus known as a trim-and-drill tool is comparable in length to a large sport utility vehicle and will ultimately be tested for use in building the Boeing 777X passenger jet. Basically the tool will be used to secure the jet’s composite wing skin for drilling and machining before assembly according to researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ONRL) who developed the tool.
Official measurement of the 3D printed trim tool co-developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory and The Boeing Company exceeded the required minimum size to achieve the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title of largest solid 3D printed item.

Electron microscope draws nano-sized patterns in metal ink One of the greatest challenges in designing electronics is drawing very fine details. You normally need lithography which complicates the process by requiring masks. However Oak Ridge National Laboratory has now found a way to write at an extreme... via Engadget Gadget News Tech News
