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.

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.
