    ​Drive west from Cincinnati along Ohio state highway 32 towards Virginia and the roads get progressively emptier. Small towns hunker down in the frigid Midwestern winter landscape, dots of colour in a sea of rolling brown hills. The further west you get, the deeper into Amish country you are - signs warn of the likelihood of encountering slow-moving buggies ahead.

Tucked behind in the well of the low-loader trailer is a tarpaulin-wrapped shape, despite the covers it is unmistakeably a large jet engine.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-GEs-growth-at-Peebles-shows-scale-of-ambitions-409238/

    ​Contained within the vast complexity of a modern widebody jet engine it may look like just another large, intricately-designed metal structure. But a 1.5m-diameter titanium front bearing housing (FBH) inside a Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engine is a structure with a difference. It could point the way to an eventual revolution in aerospace manufacturing, changing everything from the way factory floors look to the speed at which new components, prototypes and programmes are developed.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-How-3D-printing-could-change-the-way-R-R-develops-products-409304/
