#3Dprinting: To the space station and beyond

#3Dprinting: To the space station and beyond

This article is part of EDN and EE Times’ Hot Technologies: Looking ahead to 2015 feature, where our editors examine some of the hot trends and technologies in 2014 that promise to shape technology news in 2015 and beyond. It turns out the sky isn’t the limit for 3D printing. The technology, also known as additive manufacturing, can build complex prototypes, parts, tools, and models in various materials for a variety of uses, and is quickly expanding beyond making one-off products to the space industry--a place it can have a real impact. Extensive testing is being done for in-space and for-space manufacturing with objects being printed on the International Space Station (ISS) and 3D-printed rocket parts outperforming traditionally manufactured alternatives, but the technology is also proving its worth in modeling objects in space. The major space agencies have all taken no...
