NASA Prints Spaceship Parts on 3D Printer

The U.S. space agency deployed the technology, similar to the printing on the 3D printer to create the components of super-heavy carrier rocket. According to Gizmag, engineers NASA “type” metal parts for rocket engines with a highly accurate method of “selective laser melting” (SLM). This approach allows components faster and cheaper. For  3D printing system …
