Largest solid printed 3D printed item

Boeing and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, one of Boeing’s research partners, worked together to create the world's "largest solid 3-D printed item."

The record-setting object -- which measures 17.5 feet long, 5.5 feet wide and 1.5 feet tall – is a wing trim and drill tool that Boeing will use to build its forthcoming 777X airplane. And it represents Boeing’s latest achievement in 3-D printing, also known as additive manufacturing.
