3D printing in outer space: students test igus linear axes in near-zero gravity flights

When booms for solar panels or satellite antennas are transported into space in a rocket, they are exposed to very high loads. To simplify space transportation and speed up the production of these components, a student team from the Munich University of Applied Sciences, AIMIS-FYT, is researching a 3D printing process for space.
