Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Events

3D Printed Aircraft Competition

UTA will host its 4th Annual 3D Printed Aircraft Competition July 11, 2020 at Maverick Stadium in Arlington, Texas. As 3D printing technologies have expanded the design space for many applications, the challenge of leveraging this design freedom for improved performance while satisfying fabrication process constraints has likewise increased.
