3D-Printed Lego-Like Blocks Can Be Assembled by Robots into Spaceships

3D-Printed Lego-Like Blocks Can Be Assembled by Robots into Spaceships | Science, Technology, Internet | Scoop.it

Not too long ago, a couple of MIT scientists asked themselves a lofty question: "Can you 3-D print an airplane?" It didn't take long for them to realize that 3D printing anything on that scale was impractical. But 3D-printing thousands of small, Lego-like building blocks? That could work.

NASA's 3D-printed rocket part handles 20,000 pounds of thrust in test (video)

NASA's 3D-printed rocket part handles 20,000 pounds of thrust in test (video) | Science, Technology, Internet | Scoop.it

Using 3D-printing, NASA has produced a rocket injector plate that can sustain 20,000 pounds of thrust. The original machined injector plate was made up of 115 small parts, whereas the 3d-printed plate is comprised of only 2. Such parts could one day reduce rocket costs while potentially increasing safety, since they're less-complex and have fewer points of failure.
