Open Source 3-D Printing Class[edit | edit source]
For the Open Source 3-D Printing Class, Jacob will be working with Marcello Guadagno to develop a small-scale regolith printer called Stonehenge. Regolith is the rocky dust found on extraterrestrial bodies such as the Moon or Mars. For this project we will be using faux-regolith developed to imitate regolith found on the moon. This regolith dust will be mixed with polymer material and used to print small items and tools. This printer will work as a proof-of-concept of the use of regolith for additive manufacturing on the moon.
