3D Printer Goes into Space


Today NASA has launched an 3D Printer into Space to Astronauts on the International Space Station to 3D Print any parts for the Space Station. An incredible voyage into the future.
A Hardware nicknamed The Portal is a Type of Microwave test 3D Printing and microgravity.

The 3D Printing foundation also known as “additive manufacturing” has evolved the last three years with new materials and applications.

The 3D Printer was taken into Space abroad the Space X Dragon Spacecraft after extensive development work by the following programme “NASA and Made In Space over the years, supported by NASA’s Flight Opportunities Program, research and development contracts under NASA’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program and the space agency’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama”.

A Silicon Valley Company named “Made in Space” comprising of Entreneurs, space experts and 3D Printing Developers, researched and developed the technology.

“Testing of the Made In Space 3D printer involved 400-plus parabolas of microgravity test flights.

Swansea University uses 3D Printing to reshape patients face.

3D Printing was recently used by Doctors at Morriston Hospital to rebuild the face of Motorcycle accident survivor Stephen Power who broke his cheekbones in the accident. In the past 3D printing iplants were used to correct congenital conditions using custom-printed models, guides, plates and implants.

Restoring the symmetry of Mr Powers face CT scans were used to create and print a symmetrical 3D model. Maxillofacial surgeon Adrian Sugar used 3D printing for the procedure,

The project was undertaken bub the team at The Centre for Applied Reconstructive Technologies in Surgery  (CARTIS) in collaboration in Swansea between Scientists at Cardiff Metropolitan University. Design Engineer Sean Peel says the latest use of 3D printing is needed in the NHS.

” Mr Power’s operation is currently being featured in an exhibition at the Science Museum in London , called 3D Printing: The Future.”
