elon musk unveils \'iron man\'-like design tech for spacex rockets
Series innovator Elon Musk is known for his true reputationLife Tony Stark In a new video, Musk presents a very cool \"Iron Man \"-- Just like the technology at his fingertips in the rocket. The lab of his company, SpaceX. Two weeks ago, Musk wrote casually on Twitter: \"A video of designing rocket parts with gestures will be released and printed immediately with titanium. \"The video tour of Masco futuristic design technology shows this. Musk first showed how he grabbed, rotated, and amplified the wireframe model of the SpaceX Merlin rocket engine on a computer screen, simply waving his hands. He then showed how to operate the full CAD model of the rocket engine on a larger screen- If the user is wearing special glasses, the 3D version.

Musk also showed how to make a virtual rocket. The part design is true through 3D printing. Using a 3D laser metal printer, Musk shows how SpaceX builds a layer after layer of titanium particles to make a low-temperature valve housing. Musk is a busy entrepreneur. He recently unveiled his vision for a future \"super cycle\" transportation system that can ship passengers from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 35 minutes, he announced, he will travel around the country on electric cars made by Tesla Motors, another company he founded.
