First 3D-Printed Aluminium Fincan!

Thanks to our sponsor Airbus, we proudly present the prototype of the first 3D printed fincan for our rocket The Hound, which is going to be launched in 2017.
The fincan was printed using the so-called DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) procedure. In its core, the fincan features a special isogrid-structure our team has designed.
This structure cannot be manufactured using classical manufacturing techniques and enables us to save a lot of unnecessary mass.
Thus, the fincan is both light as carbon and as resistant as metal. The structure’s thermal resistance and conductivity are essential for our flights beyond Mach 4.

Technical Details:
Mass: 350 g
Build for a Cesaroni Pro75-6GXL Casing.
