"Could astronauts one day be printing rather than building a base on the Moon? In 2013 ESA, working with industrial partners, proved that 3D printing using lunar material was feasible in principle. Since then, work continues to investigate the technique. The shielding against radiation provided by a 3D-printed block of simulated lunar regolith was measured, providing important inputs for next-stage designs..."
Through 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, robust and high-performing rocket parts can be created and offer improvements over traditional manufacturing methods. SpaceX is pushing the boundaries of what additive manufacturing can do in the 21st century, ultimately making the Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft more reliable, robust and efficient than ever before.
NASA stuck a World Cup soccer ball into some of its aerodynamics testing chambers because why not. NASA is not involved in developing or testing the ball, so these demonstrations were really just for fun.
Today Autodesk and Steelblue unveiled the largest-ever 3D-printed scale-model of San Francisco. The model covers a 115+ block area encompassing the Financial and South of Market districts, including AT&T Park, the Ferry Building and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
An experimental revolution is underway in China to use 3D printing techniques to build houses. This rapid construction process was demonstrated to build ten small houses in 24 hours predominantly from recycled materials.
Europe’s very first 3D printer in space is scheduled for installation aboard the ISS next year.
Designed and built in Italy, it will be put to the test as part as ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti’s Futura mission, and is set to reach orbit in the first half of next year. Samantha herself will be launched on her six-month Station assignment on 23 November.
Bioengineers have created three-dimensional brain-like tissue that functions like and has structural features similar to tissue in the rat brain and that can be kept alive in the lab for more than two months.
Moon is the Marine Renewable Energy Program Associate with Oregon Sea Grant Extension. Her very first project in that position was to develop a wave energy curriculum built around construction of this very simple miniature wave energy converter that can actually produce a tiny voltage [...]
Instructions for building the model wave energy device are here, and the entire Wave Energy Handbook is freely available from Oregon Sea Grant.
A 3-D printer intended for the International Space Station has passed its NASA certifications with flying colors -- earning the device a trip to space sooner than expected. The next Dragon spacecraft, scheduled to launch in August, will carry the Made In Space printer on board.
Australian industries need the flexibility, insight and foresight that comes from thinking creatively, asking critical questions, forming and testing hypotheses and reasoning quantitatively – and engineers have the technical knowledge and the problem solving skills to respond to constant change.
Global efforts to return to the moon by 2024 are gearing up across many industrialized nations. The problem remains how to stay on the surface permanently? Does additive manufacturing (AM) offer an efficient solution?
The European Space Agency (ESA) has researched the feasibility of a pioneering construction method to product lunar bases by 3D printing them directly from raw materials found on the lunar surface.
Rohit Karnik es un ingeniero mecánico del Instituto Tecnológico de Massachusetts (MIT) que trabaja en tecnologías relacionadas con el transporte de agua. Hace unos meses, mientras asistía a un congreso en el que se hablaban de plantas y sistemas de riego, se le encendió la bombilla: ¿y si empleaba el mismo sistema de las plantas para filtrar el agua?
We've seen 3D-printed cells, organs, and even body parts over the last few years. But in Philadelphia, a team of scientists is printing cancerous tumors--modeling the very things that are threatening to kill patients in order to understand how to quell them.
