Project MELT: This is What a ‘Microgravity 3D Printer For Off-World Polymer Print Creation’ Looks Like | #3DPrinting #3DThursday

There’s ‘form follows function’ and then there’s ‘form follows function but also happens to look awesome because it’s designed for use in space’ – I think you know which one ^this^ is.

As mentioned earlier, Project MELT is a collaborative effort between 5 Europeans companies employing their various expertise. Portugese non-profit organization Instituto Pedro Nunes is working on potential commercial applications and linking that to the sci-tech side. SonacaSpace contributed its expertise in structural and mechanical engineering. Similarly,  OHB System AG added its own expertise as a developer of low-orbiting and geostationary satellites.
