3D Printing to Celebrate the Total Solar Eclipse

In case you had somehow missed the reports that have been flooding the news and social media all over the United States, the solar eclipse that’s happening this Monday, August 21st, will be observable within a band across 2,400 miles of the US. The 12 million people who live in the path of totality, and […]

NASA and the ASME Challenge Students to ‘Think Outside the Box’ and 3D Design for Outer Space

NASA and the ASME Challenge Students to ‘Think Outside the Box’ and 3D Design for Outer Space

It seems like there is no shortage of 3D design challenges and competitions these days. For a new technology that is growing in popularity, challenges seem like an excellent way for a company or organization to advertise and educate about its services. Meanwhile, people can display 3D design skills focused on a specific theme. And yes, there are […]

Follow in the Footsteps of Matt Damon in ‘The Martian’ with NASA’s 3D Mars Trek 2.0

Over the summer NASA launched Mars Trek, an interactive 3D map of the red planet that allowed users to zoom in and out of key areas of the planet’s surface. The interface was similar to Google Earth, though NASA included annotated locations where users could learn more about the Mars landmarks, the science of sending probes to […]

The NASA 3D Space Container Challenge Junior Finalists are Bound for Space Camp

The NASA 3D Space Container Challenge Junior Finalists are Bound for Space Camp

Last May as part of a series of challenges aimed at getting kids involved in STEM education, NASA launched the 3D Space Container Challenge. NASA asked that students ranging in age from five to fifteen to design useful and innovative containers that could be 3D printed in space. The students simply needed to submit a […]

Forecast 3D Helped NASA Mars Habitat Challenge Winner 3D Print a Replica of their Winning Design

Forecast 3D Helped NASA Mars Habitat Challenge Winner 3D Print a Replica of their Winning Design

After discovering flowing liquid water on the surface of Mars, NASA was quick to announce that they have officially started planning on a manned mission to the red planet. Which is convenient considering they just announced the winner of their 3D Printed Mars Habitat Challenge at last week’s New York Maker Faire. NASA and the […]

NASA Selects the 3D Printed Mars Habitat Challenge Finalists

NASA Selects the 3D Printed Mars Habitat Challenge Finalists

As NASA focuses on their discovery of liquid water on the surface of Mars, they also took the time to officially select the three winners for phase one of their 3D Printed Habitat Challenge. Back in August the 165 submissions were narrowed down to the top 30 semifinalists, who were then notified that their work would […]

NASA Conducts Successful Tests on New 3D Printed Turbopump for Rocket Engines

NASA Conducts Successful Tests on New 3D Printed Turbopump for Rocket Engines

We’ve all heard the phrase, “it’s not rocket science” to indicate something that isn’t particularly difficult to figure out. And you may have been told that 3D printing “isn’t rocket science” either, but sometimes it quite literally is. In this case it’s 3D printing that took place as part of the ultimate space agency and […]

AstroGro — The Self Sustainable 3D Printed Bio-farm For Space

Coming as a shock to no one, humans need to eat food. As NASA readies its (still decades-off) manned mission to Mars, one of the problems that need to be addressed is how they’re going to send enough food with the space crew to keep them alive. Not only for the journey to Mars, but […]

Eta Carinae Model 3D Printed by NASA & WhiteClouds

Eta Carinae Model 3D Printed by NASA & WhiteClouds

Eta Carinae is a luminous, huge star system about 7,500 light years from our Sun. The system is known to be erratic, producing unexpected and sometimes inexplicable galactic events–especially perplexing prior to the discovery that Eta Carinae is actually at least two stars in a close binary system. Still, some have predicted that the ultimate demise […]

Made In Space Releases New 3D Printable Model Files for 12 Objects That Were 3D Printed in Space

Made In Space Releases New 3D Printable Model Files for 12 Objects That Were 3D Printed in Space

It’s fascinating watching as Made In Space and NASA work together to develop and test 3D printing outside of the Earth’s atmosphere. Back in December one of the most eye-opening applications for a 3D printer that we have ever seen took place. NASA emailed a file for a ratchet wrench to the International Space Station, where […]

NASA to 3D Print An Entire Space Telescope, Minus the Lenses

NASA has been at the forefront of additive manufacturing technologies for some time now. They already have plans to send a 3D printer to the International Space Station later this year, but have an eventual goal, which would even make futurist Ray Kurzweil blush. Eventually, NASA would like to use terrestrial soil on the Moon or […]
