ORNL, Boeing Win Guinness World Record For Biggest 3D-Printed Piece

Guinness World Records has awarded the world record for the largest solid 3D-printed item which is a 3D-printed trim and drill tool that measures 17.5 ft x 5.5 ft x 1.5 ft. Researchers at ORNL built the tool to be evaluated by Boeing for use in constructing the aircraft leader’s 777X passenger jet.
The Guinness World Record-winning trim and drill tool will be used to secure the composite wing skin of the 777X during drilling and machining, before it is assembled. The tool itself was 3D printed at ORNL of carbon fiber and ABS thermoplastic composite materials. The research team at ORNL says the tool’s length is similar to that of a large sport utility vehicle, and that it weighs 1,650 lb (748.43 kg).
