3.0 Open Source 3D Printing Class[edit | edit source]
3.1 Main Project[edit | edit source]
- Main Project: Lunar Regolith Printer
- Goal: Build a printer capable of printing using a plastic polymer + lunar regolith compound.
- Background: Humans must utilize the resources available to them on the moon if they are to permanently inhabit it. This printer will be the first in a line of open-source machines to aid in the development of sustainable lunar in-situ resource utilization efforts. The first iteration of our team's printer will demonstrate an affordable method of small-scale additive manufacturing that uses a plastic polymer mixed with a lunar regolith simulant (because real moon dust is very expensive).
