This rocket engine was 3D printed… and designed by an artificial intelligence
German start-up Hyperganic has teamed up with 3D printer maker EOS to develop software capable of generating rocket engine designs. The objective: to make the most of the properties of additive manufacturing to produce ultra-complex systems.
Moving from computer-aided design to computer-generated design. This is the goal of the German start-up Hyperganic, which has partnered with the machine manufacturer EOS to develop software capable of designing parts that make the most of the properties of 3D printing. First result of this collaboration: an ultra-optimized rocket engine, generated without human intervention, presented as “the most complex part ever made by 3D printing” by Lin Kayser, founder of the nugget. The engine features many complex internal cooling channels. Who warns that “the next ones will be much more complicated” still.
