Fleet Space develops satellites that are fully 3D printed.

There have been a lot of projects recently that combine additive manufacturing and space, from constructing projects on the moon to 3D-printed rocket parts and satellites. And rightfully so. Technology is opening up a whole new universe of possibilities for space industries. Both NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA), […]

In order to identify buildable areas and collect materials on the Moon, Luyten plans for rovers to accompany the Platypus Galacticus

Luyten intends to use its Platypus Galacticus 3D printer to construct structures on the Moon.

Luyten, an Australian 3D printer manufacturer recently revealed its aspirations to conquer the final frontier. The space race appears to have resurfaced recently. We’ve seen huge moon projects from firms all around the world in recent years, such as Agile Space Industries’ Griffin lunar lander, ICON’s ambitions to 3D print […]
