These planes, the X-24 through the X-38, cover the period from 1959 through 2002. Some were used to explore technologies that would later be used on the Space Shuttle. Others pushed the envelope in terms of control and flight surfaces, knowledge that would be used on fighter aircraft as well as drones.</p> Additive Manufacturing 101 http://machinedesign.com/cad/additive-manufacturing-101 <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Stratasys </div> <div class="node-body article-body">What is Additive Manufacturing?
