To complement the successful test of the printed injectors at NASA’s Glenn Research Center, engineers at the Marshall Space Flight Center tested their own printed injectors.
Rocket scientists get one injector closer to 3D printing spaceships with a successful test at a NASA facility.
Made in Space announced that their 3D printer prototype passed a series of critical microgravity tests, a prelude to operating in space.
NASA is sending a 3D printer to the ISS and the European Space Agency has plans to print lunar bases with the D-Shape.
A new company called Deep Space Industries has plans to mine nearby asteroids and use the materials in large, orbiting 3D printers to service and build satellites.
As this and the other 3D printing-oriented NASA projects mature, we’re going to start seeing some serious testing of actual printing on the moon.
NASA’s Space Launch System project will be enhanced by using selective laser melting (SLM) to print many of the parts
SpiderFab is NASA’s hopeful path to reduced costs and the incredibly realistic capacity of building spacey things like station components, satellites, modules, and eventually entire spacecrafts IN space.
