3D Printing a Wrench in Space
Made In Space completed10 Year.
This was the first 3D printer in the space ever.
In 2015, Sv3dprinter wrote an article about Dr. 3D Printer Solutions for 3d printing questions (3D Printing a Wrench in Space).
Technology changed so much now.
Let’s see if we can be differentiated from what kind of development we are experiencing now in 2020.
NASA and Made In Space, Inc. have partnered to install a 3D printer in the International Space Station. This is the first tool to be 3D printed in space that was designed on earth and emailed to the International Space Station. The wrench took 4 hours to create on the space station.
According to NASA’s, chief strategy officer of Made in Space, “These first 3D prints will be brought down to Earth for examination where they’ll be compared to identical objects manufactured on the ground we’ll use them to characterize the effects of long-term microgravity on our 3D-printing process so that we can model and predict the performance of objects that we manufacture in space in the future.”
