Additive Manufacturing PMA-290E NAS Jax P-8/EP-3 Support (3D printing)
CFT provides additive manufacturing support (specifically, AMISM FST) by producing replacement parts for newly designed configuration of P-8 ALPHA. As well, we convert scanned files (auto cad drawings) to DXF files for a 3rd party contractor to manufacture brackets using a water jet system.
CFT uses specialized software to modify and refine the mesh design. Some of the common mesh repairs include the following.
Removal of duplicated, unreferenced vertices, null faces.
Removal of small isolated components.
Coherent normal unification and flipping.
Erasing of non-manifold faces.
Automatic filling of holes.
One example, a very complex Ultem 9085 part to be used as a permanent mod in the aircraft. Because it is an actual component being used in the aircraft it needed to be dimensioned and printed perfectly. *Converting scanned files (auto cad drawings) to DXF files for a 3rd party contractor to manufacture brackets using a water jet system.
