It’s that time of the year again…Join GROWit for our Fall Quarterly Tech Seminar!
Date: October 23, 2013
Time: 10:00am – 3:00pm
Location: GROWit HQ – 20918 Bake Pkwy, Suite 106, Lake Forest, CA 92630
What is the BEST material for your 3D printed project?
GROWit welcomes you to join us for a complimentary afternoon of educational presentations on additive manufacturing technologies, an overview of materials, as well as a tour of the GROWit facility. This Tech Seminar will be focused on learning the primary benefits of each material, key strategies on when to consider the secondary benefits as being more important than the primaries and how this applies to the successes of your project. You will have the opportunity to listen to industry leaders speak on current additive manufacturing related topics and have one-on-one conversations with 3D printing experts.
Save the date and reserve your seat today!
All guests will have a chance to WIN a set of our brand new periodic table material’s sample kit!*

As we all know, 3D printing is excellent for light-weight, durable and complex parts – ideal for aerospace parts. Recently, NASA has further proved this theory by ground-launching a test rocket that was printed with the Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) process. NASA printed an injector rocket using just 2 parts, normally made in 115 with traditional manufacturing. Results were flawless and NASA plans to continue to test using 3D printing.
“This successful test of a 3D printed rocket injector brings NASA significantly closer to proving this innovative technology can be used to reduce the cost of flight hardware,”
Chris Singer, director of the Engineering Directorate, Marshall Space Flight Center.
GROWit also proved this theory to be true with 3D printing and aerospace parts.
We are proud to introduce: “The Flying Wing”
Created with airGRO – our super light-weight PLS glass-filled nylon. We have printed a 3D part that is both light weight and very durable. The benefit of 3D printing this part ensures for a quick turnaround on custom aircrafts. We were able to achieve this by taking the customer’s file and modifying the design to decrease the weight by over 1000%. Then printed in sections and bonded together, measuring to 9.9697” x 12.0476” x 1.5180, “The Flying Wing” was created.
Our goal: To establish a process that is repeatable with a very quick turnaround. In the future we would likely produce this in less than a week – from design to a functioning wing.
