The world's hardest tree?

Siemens researcher prints Christmas trees from gas turbine steel


Siemens uses 3D printing processes to speed up gas turbine repair.

For certain types of turbines, defective burner parts are simply reprinted, reducing repair times by as much as 90 percent.

Olaf Rehme of Siemens Corporate Technology also uses one of the super-hard special steels that can withstand extreme conditions for his own personal project: printing Christmas trees.

He takes his print data from the website grabcad.com.
