NASA Wants to 3D Print a Lunar Base Too

130303-nasa

Last month, we read about how the European Space Agency was teaming up with architectural firm Foster and Partners. The idea is that they would use 3D printing technology to build a lunar base. This makes a lot of sense, since it utilizes existing resources on the moon to build those structures, rather than shuttling all those materials from Earth. It seems that NASA is working on a similar idea.

Solar-Sinter creates 3D objects using sun and sand

solar

3D printers are getting better and better. They tend to use materials like resin or ABS plastic, but what if the printers used two widely available resources in the desert, like sun and sand? Markus Kayser, a MA student at the Royal College of Art, has done just that. The “Solar-Sinter” is powered by the sun via two photovoltaic panels, and it focuses the sun's rays to heat sand to its melting point so that it solidifies as glass when it cools. Then the fully automated device creates a glass object from a 3D computer design.
