Additive technologies pertaining to layer-by-layer build-up and synthesis of objects with the help of computer 3D technologies are currently coming to prominence in the construction of space equipment.
Scientists believe that 3D printing may provide a significant boost to extraterrestrial exploration.
How can the 3D printing of structures in space be optimised and their security increased? How can superlight optic systems for nanosatellites with the help of new technologies be created? Researchers from Russian universities that are part of the Project “5-100”, have detailed their advances. One of the key advantages of the new approach lies in the fact that one 3D printer can replace loads of conventional factory equipment. In November 2020, the magazine Forbes included additive technologies (from Lat. additivus) into the list of five new revolutionary technologies that entrepreneurs should pay attention to. The authors of the review noted that additive technologies could provide many benefits […]
