NASA Selects „Made in Space“ to Produce In-orbit Plastic Recycling System for 3D Printer Filament

The ability to 3D print objects in space has been one of NASA’s major goals in the last few years. In fact NASA is in the midst of working on several important projects which promise to take this amazing technology to new frontiers. 3D printing in space, with zero gravity, is an engineering problem which NASA has already been able to overcome. Unlike typical FDM printers which factor the workings of gravity into their schematics, NASA, with the help of companies like Made In Space, has come up with a way to deal with the various issues a printer may face when there is no gravity pulling the melted material down on top of the build plate.
