Need a Tool. Just Press Print.


by Dave Miller

You are in outer space doing a space walk fixing a crucial part on the station. You drop your wrench. It floats out of your reach into the abyss. Now what?

Luckily you thought to bring your 3D printer.

I saw this technology at a trade show. It’s just plain awesome. Templates, prototypes and molds with a mere click of the mouse.

Now they are adding a resin to solidify the product making it fully functional.
