The additive manufacturing and 3-dimensional manufacturing technology offer unparalleled flexibility in terms of part geometry, material composition and manufacturing time. There are many difficulties in manufacturing parts in the aerospace field. Thin-walled aircraft engine components and structures with complex geometry, the difficulties encountered in the processing of materials, are the other main factors that compel the aviation industry to adopt the use of layered manufacturing technology. It is progressing in the direction of radically changing the aerospace sector in the production of extremely complex and lightweight parts with material wastes that are almost none. The aerospace engine industry requires stronger, lighter and more durable components. Today's additive manufacturing technology provides new possibilities to meet these situations. In this study, research and development activities carried out in the field of layered manufacturing in the aviation industry have been examined and a literature review has conducted. In the experimental study, a scaled 3D prototype of an exemplary rocket equipment was produced using 3D printer technology. The pressure parameters of the study have been examined.
