Manufacturing In Space

NASA has awarded a $73.7 million contract to a company named Made In Space, to demonstrate their ability to assemble spacecraft and spacecraft components in low-Earth orbit. Scheduled to launch in 2022, Made In Space’s Archinaut One will ride a Rocket Lab Electron rocket ship from New Zealand into a low-Earth orbit. Once it reaches the correct altitude, Archinaut One will begin 3D printing a ...

3D Printed Performance Parts On Demand

One of the shortcomings in additive manufacturing has been the materials. Traditionally low-performance materials such as nylon, plastics or softer metals. Print Parts Inc. provides on-demand 3D printing using high-performing composite materials like Onyx, Nylon, Carbon Fiber, and Kevlar with its Markforged machines. The New York-based company has been providing 3d printing using traditional ...

Using Artificial Intelligence For Better 3D Printing

Additive Manufacturing, or 3D printing, has helped manufacturing take giant leaps in the past few years. But one of the deficiencies in additive manufacturing is consistency. Subtle deviations in the geometric specifications of identical parts, even subtle variations, are a serious issue for precision applications like the aerospace industry. 3D printing has done wonders to save time with rapid ...
