X-59 3D Printing

This X-59 3D Printing files are available for download below. The X-59 experimental aircraft is approximately 100 feet long and is designed to fly at Mach 1.4 (925 mph). The aircraft is a part of the Quesst mission, which has two goals:

  1. design and build NASA’s X-59 research aircraft with technology that reduces the loudness of a sonic boom to of a gentle thump to people on the ground; and
  2. fly the X-59 over select U.S. communities to gather data on human responses to the sound generated during supersonic flight and deliver that data set to U.S. and international regulators.
