NASA green-lights Made In Space metal 3D printer for Mars

In 2017, American microgravity 3D printer developer Made In Space was awarded a NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract for the development of its Vulcan Hybrid Manufacturing System. Now, just over a year later, NASA has renewed this SBIR for the Vulcan’s continued development. Once complete, the Vulcan will be capable of working more […]

German materials researchers explore zero gravity metal 3D printing

Researchers at the German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) and TU Clausthal are working on a project titled “Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity.” Poised to compete with microgravity metal 3D printing efforts from the likes of NASA and Made In Space, the team’s experiments have been conducted in a number of parabolic […]

Astronauts may depend upon recycled urine filament for 3D printing in space

“If astronauts are going to make journeys that span several years, we’ll need to find a way to reuse and recycle everything they bring with them,” says Mark A. Blenner, assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at Clemson University, South Carolina. To this end, the Blenner Research Group is looking into the potential uses […]

Made In Space startet 3D-Druck mit Hochtemperatur-Kunststoffen auf ISS

Der Entwickler und Hersteller des derzeit auf der internationalen Raumstation ISS installierten AMF 3D-Druckers, Made In Space, hat mit der Verarbeitung von Hochtemperatur-Kunststoffen PEI und PC begonnen.  Polyetherimid (PEI) und Polycarbonat (PC) sind aufgrund ihrer Festigkeit und Temperaturbeständigkeit luft- und raumfahrttaugliche Materialen. Ein Beispiel dafür sind additive gefertigte Komponenten aus ULTEM 9085 und ULTEM 1010, […]
