How far can metal additive manufacturing take aircraft engines?

Every year, aircraft turbofan technology propels billions of people into the sky. To allow engines to remain safely secured to aircraft wings for several years, the material properties required in turbofan engines are, naturally, exacting. Engine parts must withstand extreme conditions (stress, corrosion and heat) but still guarantee predictable behavior even in extraordinary situations.
