3D Printing Case Study Highlight - Defence/ Military End Use Parts

The Royal Dutch Navy has embraced the use of UltiMaker 3D printing technology in their defence operations. Specifically, they have employed the UltiMaker 3D printer to design a modular antenna fixture for their high-speed interference boat.

This innovative approach allows for easy adjustment and improvement of the antenna as new and more advanced electronics are integrated into the vehicle. By utilising a modular system, the Royal Dutch Navy ensures that the electrical components of the antenna remain dry, thereby enhancing its overall performance and longevity.

This application of UltiMaker technology showcases the Navy's commitment to staying at the forefront of defence innovation.
