According to Andre Pate, the group leads for additive manufacturing at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, “It’s like working with papier-mâché. You build each feature layer by layer, and soon you have a detailed part. He also mentioned, secondary structures, perseverance’s printed parts wouldn’t jeopardize the mission if they didn’t work as planned, flying these parts to Mars is a huge milestone that opens the door a little more for additive manufacturing in the space industry.”
