ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst discusses benefits of 3D printing on the ISS

Printers in space

Improvising new stuff from the stuff you have is part of an astronaut’s job description – think Apollo 13’s crew refitting CO2 filters to save their own lives, or stranded Mark Watney in The Martian, feeding himself on the Red Planet. Now plans are underway to manufacture items in orbit, and ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst argues that 3D printing on the ISS could make a big difference to living and working in space.

Williams Racing and Nexa3D bring the NXE400 to F1 racing

Rapid polymer 3D printing to Formula One racing

Beginning this month, Nexa3D’s NXE400 ultrafast photoplastic 3D printer will be available to manufacture functional wind tunnel parts for aero testing. The company’s NexaX software enables high-performance additive manufacturing processes using modern computation architecture to develop light-weight parts and to accelerate the file-to-part process. Speed of production lets Williams iterate and test parts faster, thus hopefully giving them an edge come racing time.
