Thanks, Debera, glad you enjoyed it. 3D printing has been used in aerospace, as well as high-end racecars, for some time, as we described in this 2011 DN article

Its really great to see that 3d printing is also becoming very popular in aerospace. If its becomming popular in aerospace definitely this means that these printers can print heavy machinery as well and are very reliable . But to be frank i feel very much fascinated to hear and watch printers printing aircraft engines, different body organs and so on which few years back was just impossible . We are acheiving which once was  impossible and here it comes that the word impossible itself shows that i am possible .

I read somewhere that there are hospitals where they have collected the 3d printed silicon eye balls, noses ,ears , even dentists are using this technology to its extreme to get different jaws 3d printed . With all these examples we can think where  the technology is going and how far this 3d printing technology will go .

Thanks Anne for such an interesting article . No doubt 3d printing is becomming very popular in medicine these days . They are printing skin and different body organs with the help of 3d printers such as heart liver and so on with such sort of technology patients will not have to wait for a long time to get the organs for transplant .

"Quality assessments of 3D printed parts are being worked on by several different groups and individual organizations, including NASA and GE Aviation in aerospace. Not enough work has been done yet to be able to formalize them into industry standards."

Ann thanks for the clarification and link. Hope further they will take it to industrial standard.

Mydesign, thanks for clarifying your question. Quality assessments of 3D printed parts are being worked on by several different groups and individual organizations, including NASA and GE Aviation in aerospace. Not enough work has been done yet to be able to formalize them into industry standards.
We've also reported on some work on developing materials standards by NASA and the ASTM:

"I understood that you meant quality tests of 3D printed parts. I'm asking what specific ones you are referring to when you wrote "is it testified by any of the apex bodies". Do you mean there are specific tests and you want to know if aerospace companies use them? Or are you wondering if such tests exist? Please clarify so I or someone else can respond."

Ann, a comparison for quality of 3D printing outcome with conventional way of making aerospace spare parts

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
Fifteen European research centers have launched EuroCPS to help European companies develop innovative products for the Internet of Things.
Get your Allman Brothers albums ready. The iconic Volkswagen Microbus may be poised for a comeback, and this time it could be electric.
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
