I just realized that I had never posted an introduction. My apologies.

I'm Steven, from Kansas. I'm an NC Programmer at an aircraft company. I've always loved computers and tech. I am pretty much brand new to Linux and am fired up to learn everything about it. On top of that, I enjoy tinkering and want to learn programming (the programming I currently do for a living is creating part programs to build aircraft parts so, a different type of programming).

I look forward to interacting with you all (and appreciate the help I've gotten in the last week or so).

G'day from DownUnder, Steven, and welcome to linux.org :)

Glad to hear you are getting the help you need. We aim to please (and occasionally miss the mark) ;)

How long, do you think, before aircraft are built with a big 3-D printer (running on Linux software, of course)?

Enjoy

Well, they actually already make some components using 3D printing. For example, the parts I program are nested on fixtures and some of the fixtures are 3D printed.
My department actually works with composite material parts so it’s not much of a stretch to believe we’re headed that way.

Will the entire plane ever be 3D printed? Hard to tell but I doubt it ;)
