3D printing of lunar bases using moondust
posterposted on 2015-05-14, 08:58 authored by Athanasios Goulas
An investigation into using Selective Laser Melting (SLM), a modern powder-bed fusion category Additive Manufacturing/3D printing process, in order to fabricate structures out of non-traditional multi-component ceramic materials such as lunar regolith (moondust). The overall aim of this research is to investigate the feasibility/suitability of the SLM method for on-site (on the moon) manufacturing of various structures, parts/replacements for future space applications.
