and another thing...

Back in the day, I was at the place where they designed the 3D-Printed Commonwealth Games torch...

The designer had to be particularly careful about orientation of the print becasue of shear lines in the final product... I assume they have sorted those problems for the rocket engine printer otherwise, given the 3D nature of the curves in and around a combustion chamber/Turbo Pump, IMHO a world of RUD awaits the first few off the line!
