Research Program Detail

Intelligent subtractive 3D Manufacturing of large dimension part, Economic and Environmental high performance.


DryToFly provides a global response to develop new innovative hybrid approaches in break with conventional paradigms to decrease more than 30% of the large parts production costs:

  • by decreasing the material usage
  • by decreasing  the machines investment and possession costs
  • by accelerating the parts industrialization improving the environmental impact of the used techniques

The project goal is to revolution the traditional addictive and subtractive approaches which reach the performance limites for the large parts machining

The major innovations are:

  • a new machine architecture based on the local machining
  • advanced tools for the cryogenic assisted machining
  • new substractive (advanced machining) and additive manufacturing strategies by Stratoconception®
  • new machining cycles
  • machinig driving in real time assisted by the machining monitoring and the adapted command
