Characterization of Printed Components Under Space Conditions

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

Characterization of the survival of digitally fabricated (printed) components in space environments is a crucial step towards the ultimate manufacture and application of printed spacecraft. Little data currently exists to fill this void; therefore, this proposed research will help to fulfill NASA's Space Technology Roadmap TA12: Materials, Structures, Mechanical Systems, and Manufacturing by providing the starting database necessary to push the advanced manufacturing process of digital fabrication into usage on NASA missions. The enabling of this novel manufacturing process would in turn give NASA personnel new, groundbreaking tools to accomplish previously infeasible mission and could ultimately lead to on-demand manufacturing in space.
