3D Printing Photos: Europe's Project AMAZE for Space Travel

ESA-N. Vicente

Pieces like the example in this photo were shown in the London Science Museum, UK, on Oct. 15 where international experts presented the world’s largest metal 3D-printing project, lead by ESA and the EU. AMAZE – Additive Manufacturing Aiming Towards Zero Waste and Efficient Production of High-Tech Metal Products – involves 28 industrial partners across Europe. 3D printing builds a solid object from a series of layers, each one printed on top of the last. This ‘additive manufacturing’ technique produces very complex structures with minimal waste and maximum flexibility. [Read the Full Story of ESA's AMAZE 3D Printing Project here.]
