MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — To prepare for a future where parts can be built on-demand in space, Made in Space, the space manufacturing company, has partnered with NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center to launch the first 3D printer to space.
Made in Space’s customized 3D printer will be the first device to manufacture parts away from planet Earth. The 3D Printing in Zero-G Experiment will validate the capability of additive manufacturing in zero-gravity.
“Imagine an astronaut needing to make a life-or-death repair on the International Space Station,” said Aaron Kemmer, CEO of Made in Space. “Rather than hoping that the necessary parts and tools are on the station already, what if the parts could be 3D printed when they needed them?”

TCT Magazine China's 3D printing revenues to reach $1.6bn by 2016 TCT Magazine China is an early adopter of 3D printing, with decision-makers in Beijing pumping cash into 3D printing and additive manufacturing research and development since 1992.
Brian Robin's insight:
Though we have fallen behind in some fields of study, the US has ALWAYS led the way in design and innovation. But for how much longer???
The Formlabs journey began early 2011 through conversations among a group of designers and engineers. Just like you, we saw the power of 3D printing but were frustrated by the complexity and enormous price tags that come with high-end professional machines. And so, we started to dream of a digital fabrication tool that was intuitive, powerful and affordable all at once.
Today that dream is here -- The Form 1 is shipping -- thanks to YOU.
