First Item Manufactured in Space.

Really liked this story about the first 3d printed tool made in space.
Thought I would share it with you. Any suggestions for future designs to print on ISS?

That's really quite interesting, I can see this really benefiting the astronauts on the ISS and keeping costs down for NASA, why send thousand of tools and parts up into space when you can in theory have all of them up there for a fraction of the cost.

Any astronaut wanting to smuggle on some springs and darts could also print themselves some blasters don't know how well games would work when your perpetually falling in a metal tube but some one should find out for science Razz.

Well, in zero G range won't be a problem! Your Maverick really could shoot 100ft flat.

That all depends on the length of the space station corridors.

You could shoot a dart on a space walk and it would go on fo ever.

You'd need a flywheeler or a pre-pressurised air blaster as a plunger blaster wouldn't even be able to fire a dart out of it's barrel. Still, a space walk RS battle still sounds good to me. Razz

Hooray- another reason a flywheel is better than a springer! In deep space no one can hear your Xtremes scream.....

And they won't overheat and melt either!

Bit of a bigger doing a dart sweep in NEO though…
