3D printing in outer space: students test igus linear axes in near-zero gravity flights

Published on: 12/10/2021

Students use drylin linear units to develop a 3D printer for the cost-effective production of structural components in outer space. When booms for solar panels or satellite antennas are transported into space in a rocket, they are exposed to very high loads. To simplify space transportation and speed up the production of these components, a […]
