NASA & Made in Space: 3D Printing in Space #3DThursday #3DPrinting

While we have covered Made in Space before, sharing about their efforts to advocate for a role for additive manufacturing in space, this discussion about joint efforts with NASA to get not only 3D printers in space, but newly announced R3DO initiative to find solutions for recycling ABS print materials in place, and other elements rolled into the slated launches are well worth a listen!

NASA & Made in Space: 3D Printing in Space G+ Hangout: Manufacturing Technology in Space, hosted by Adam Mann of WIRED:

[Helpful hint — there is a bizarre time loop over the course of the first 3min that disrupts the discussion — jump right to about 03:00min when you hit the loops to get back into the discussion.]

NASA and Made in Space will discuss the 3D printer which will be launching in space, and the impact the technology stands to have on the agency in the future. Discussion moderated by WIRED’s Adam Mann.

Participants:

  • LaNetra Tate, Space Technology Mission Directorate program executive for additive manufacturing of NASA
  • Niki Werkheiser, Made in Space integration manager for NASA
  • Michael Chen, CSO for Made In Space

Moderator:

  • Adam Mann, Space and physics reporter for WIRED

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
