High-performance engineering thermoplastics like ULTEM 9085 are giving engineers more options in using additive manufacturing for creating finished, end-use production parts, not just prototypes. ULTEM 9085 was used to 3D-print this M3500 instrument, which is a turn and bank indicator that tells the pilot the rate of aircraft turn.
