UK Startup Shows Off World’s Largest 3D Printed Rocket Engine | take a look at the gallery Rocket Engine | What's the Future 3D Printed?

World’s Largest 3D Printed Rocket Engine



It's all about according to the report of the Orbex space.
It's a long way from taking on Blue Origin or SpaceX, but UK startup Orbex is confident enough to show off its Prime Rocket's second stage
Inside the engineering prototype's shell is what it claims is the "world's largest" 3D printed rocket engine, which is also designed to run on bio-propane, a renewable fuel source. 
A/c to the reports...

The entire rocket engine will stand at 56 feet (17 meters) tall roughly a quarter of the size of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, for context. In other words, things are heating up in the world of 3D printed spacecraft.
The rocket itself is made of carbon fiber and aluminum composite that's supposed to be 30% lighter than any other vehicle in its category.
So, 
What will it carry with all of those weight savings? 
Orbex is aiming to pull off its first launch from Scotland in 2021 and has signed up Switzerland's Astrocast SA as a customer to launch 10 nanosatellites in 2023 to build out a global IoT network. 
Small satellite headed to sun-synchronous or polar altitudes are where Orbex expects to find business for this rocket, even if we have to wait a few years before that actually happens.

3D Printed Future:

Orbex has already made major strides, choosing the yet-to-be-built spaceport in Sutherland, Scotland last year for its upcoming first launch in 2021. 
The company also partnered with Swiss satellite tech startup Astrocast to launch 64 nanosatellites to build a global Internet of Things network.
It’s yet another sign that the private space sector is growing and at an unrelenting pace. 3D printing technology could push it even further ahead.
