    And so did the US at the same time according to the same article (last paragraph)
    'Other militaries around the world — including the US Navy — are also using 3D printing for on-ship repairs and other parts creations. It looks like this convenient technology is here to stay. '

    Selon la presse japonaise Asahi Shimbun, le ravitaillement du porte-hélicoptères japonais JDS Kaga et du destroyer JDS Inazuma par un navire pétrolier américain, le 25 Octobre au sud du Vietnam et au-delà de la ligne en 9 traits, a été suivi par le destroyer chinois 170 Lanzhou.

    Translated from French by Microsoft
    According to the Japanese press Asahi Shimbun, the supply of the Japanese helicopter carrier JDS Kaga and the destroyer JDS Inazuma by an American oil ship on 25 October in southern Vietnam and beyond the line in 9 lines, was followed by the Chinese destroyer 170 Lanzhou.

    yeapp, 170 Lanzhou is the first original 052C back in 2002 ... since then China has developed 052C+ (6) and many 052D and now 055.

    So really 170 Lanzhou is not a fancy toy anymore ... over 15 years old ... but still looking good

    NZ's 'Rocket Lab used 3D printing when making the Electron rocket which was used to make a private company second behind space X to launch an object into orbit.
