RE: 3-D Printers: Advancing Us Into The Space Age

in LeoFinance2 years ago

For example, if they land on Mars and then are able to print a building when they get there.

My guess is, with the advancements in the material sciences we end up seeing buildings "grown".

Also, there is already a 3-D printer on the ISS that is used to print out tools and parts. So they are already getting there on that end.

Well that's good. I didn't know that. It totally makes sense though. I wonder how much of an impact printing with zero gravity makes? You would think that since it's all programmed in that the machine could print it however it needs to be printed, but the "stress" of gravity has to make some sort of difference in how they perform. It's good it's being tested.
