If NASA’s Journey to Mars project succeeds, the astronauts who make the 140 million-mile (225 million-km) trip to the Red Planet in the 2030s will need someplace to stay. The space agency is looking at 3D printing, using on-site materials, to manufacture humanity’s first deep space home. “Creating a self-sustaining civilization on Mars is one of mankind’s greatest Read More
3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing
This is a channel about 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing (AM) for manufacturing professionals. AM is a fast-moving area of manufacturing technology and there are a wide variety of technologies use to 3D print or build objects, such as stereolithography (SLA), fused deposition modeling (FDM), digital light processing (DLP), direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) and more. At Advanced Manufacturing Media, we partner with RAPID - the leading conference and exposition for 3D printing -- and cover all AM methods, including emerging ones, such as Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM).
