Milestone - Made In Space achieved a very important milestone: the longest 3D print yet made. How cool!!!
By “longest”, I don’t mean the longest duration; you would not want a contest where everyone sits around waiting the longest. No, this is about length, and Made In Space 3D printed a structure no less than 37.7m long. Yes, that’s meters!
Previously the longest 3D print I’d seen was a demonstration done by Stratasys to show off their “Infinite Build Demonstrator”, a machine that 3D prints sideways and can theoretically print infinitely long objects if you keep feeding in thermoplastic pellets into its top-mounted hopper.
The experiment by Made In Space appears to follow a similar “infinite” process. To read the entire article click HERE
