(ESA)  Ten ways 3D printing could change space

This close-up shows a titanium ball manufactured by 3D printing. ESA is investigating the potential of this promising new technology to transform the way space missions are put together.

1. Items impossible to make any other way “This design is a perfect example of additive manufacturing (AM),” explains ESA materials engineer Benoit Bonvoisin. “These balls are hollow with a complex external geometry, making them incredibly light while remaining stiff. They simply could not have been manufactured in a single part, conventionally.”

3D Printable Type
I know there are designers working on typefaces that are optimised for 3D printing but this alphabet, by Loren Kulesus of Brooklyn, is something else entirely.

“The design uses 1mm wall thicknesses which seem to print very nicely on all 3d printers, and the simple and iterative appearance mimics heat sinks.”

Look at that ‘o’ made by joining two blocks! Very imaginative. typeworship:

Kinematics turns any 3D shape into a foldable form for 3D printing.
Kinematics is a system for 4D printing that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. Each component is rigid, but in aggregate they behave as a continuous fabric. Though made of many distinct pieces, these designs require no assembly. Instead the hinge mechanisms are 3D printed in-place and work straight out of the machine.
You can make and order (or print!) your own designs using the Kinematics app.

I found this article through VCU libraries and it gives a full detailed description of 3D printing that will help me in my research process.
