Technology has progressed enormously in the last 20 years, today it is possible to print 3D models of 40 types of materials. Following this breakthrough, 3D printers are not only used for prototyping, but also for finished products.
NASA experts believe that 3D printers are an effective method for the production of tools and spare parts required for the operation of the International Space Station. At this time, transporting a kilogram of equipment to the ISS costs about $ 20,000, so that the use of 3D printers would significantly reduce costs. Furthermore, a 3D printer provides flexibility. One of the researchers working with NASA on the project 3D printing, Gonzalo Martinez, explained: "If the astronauts on Apollo 13 had a 3D printer on board, the famous phrase" Houston, we have a problem "were in fact" Houston, we have a problem, send a pattern to print tool that we need to solve it.
