Boom Supersonic, an airplane manufacturer aiming to build a supersonic airliner for testing in 2020, inked a seven-year 3D printing partnership extension with Stratasys.

Terms of the deal weren't disclosed. Stratasys and Boom Supersonic have been partners for three years in a deal that printed more than 200 parts for prototypes and parts using Stratasys F370 and Fortus 450mc 3D printers. Boom Supersonic recently raised $100 million in a Series B venture round. The company has also partnered with Dassault Systèmes to develop Overture, its commercial airliner.

Under the partnership, Boom Supersonic will use Stratasys' F900 3D printer to create hundreds of parts for a demonstrator supersonic jet.

Stratasys said its F900 3D Printer with Aircraft Interiors Solution (AIS) will make parts for the XB-1, Boom Supersonic's demo jet. The aim of the package is to create repeatable development of aircraft production parts.

The new agreement includes:

  • The integration of Stratasys' FDM 3D printing technology into flight part production for XB-1.
  • Ultimately, integration will continue into Overture, Boom Supersonic's commercial airliner scheduled for the mid-2020s.
  • Usage of the Stratasys F900 3D Printer to use thermoplastics and parts with advanced mechanical properties.
  • Documentation and training to qualify parts.
