3D printed Mars

Posted on Updated on

As explained by Swiss trainee Miro Voellmy 3D printed Mars, “Anyone with a 3D printer can build their own ExoMy, at an estimated budget of €500 or less. The source code is available on GitHub along with a step-by-step assembly guide and tutorials.
We focused on making the design as affordable and accessible as possible. It uses a Raspberry Pi computer and off-the-shelf electronic parts available online and at any hobby shop. Our hope is that school or university students will make their own ExoMy, to become familiar with robotics, and learn about the full-sized ExoMars rover, which is scheduled for launch in 2022.”

Environmental friendly 3D printing microstructure material

According to Professor at NUST MISIS, Ph.D. Alexander Gromov, “Changing the chemical and phase composition of the powder for printing by introducing additional components into the main matrix allows improving its properties. In particular, carbon nanofibers have high thermal conductivity, which helps to minimize temperature gradients between printed layers during product synthesis, at the stage of selective laser melting. Thanks to this, the microstructure of the material can be almost completely eliminated from inhomogeneities.”
