3D printing technology for some space stuff
Not seen anything about it, is it some sort of multi nozzle printer.
This machine allows printing multi-composite parts simultaneously from several materials, which is infeasible in other types of aerospace 3d printing.
The 3D printer I`ve mentioned is called additive manufacturing services and here you may find more detailed information about this invention made by a small space technology company. This 3 d printer allows printing multi-composite parts simultaneously from several materials, which is infeasible in other types of aerospace 3d printing. https://www.skyrora.com/additive
'Rocket science' 3D printing is a solid development during recent years.
Good to see such companies to grasp the cutting-edge.
Large global scale and smaller companies are working to put it on a routine rail, regardless of a project scale (near-earth orbit or Moon flight).
One goal involvement in the industry will not take long to be 'every day' technology.
I was staggered too when I found this information about the 3d printing technology. I also got to know that 3d printing technology is used in the manufacturing of airplane engines. Last of all, I`d like to say that 3d printing technology is used in the manufacturing of some parts of engines for rocket XL https://www.skyrora.com/skyrora-xl
'Rockets sound scary, but they're very easy!'
NASA's Space Exploration Educators Conference (SEEC), cooperating with smaller companies and education initiatives, supporting 3D printing rockets masterclass for even for youngsters.
The 'main stream' of in the age of technology brought to everyone.
Leaping forward to the future with the fresh, dreaming young heads. Long term assert to the future of humanity.
As the subject is '3D printing technology for some space stuff', I would like to widen information a bit.
There are already tenders held for the best proof of concept for 3D printed homes for Mars colonization.
I am very impressed with this innovation, it will be able to save well the cost of building missiles.
3D printing is revolutionizing launch vehicle design by reducing component counts, integrating complex geometry into lightweight structures, and speeding the whole design and manufacturing cycle. These are all vital in the relentless drive to lower the cost per kilogram launched into space.
Nice video on the topic
Research and proof tests also show that 3D printing can be successfully done under zero gravity conditions. That might bring a crucial contribution for future installations, repairmen in space, extraterrestrial bases building (?).
This type of tech needs to be on the moon right now, building a base/infrastructure for missions to the moon and outward. With this tech we could really build solid structures on a planet/moon in a general short period of time. I believe they have patented this tech I need to look into if this company has a stock symbol because this company could be a huge player in the space sector.
And as you saw in the video they were 3d printing entire engines.... so we just send up the materials and the hardware and the 3d printer can make the generators, buildings etc... its better than packing a moving truck to the moon 😉
I have encountered this post today.
'A 3D printer is useful for space habitat construction.
in the future scientists will use raw materials such as dust, rocks, and other onsite materials from Moon and Mars.'
