Abstract

This paper discusses a smart and innovative approach towards 3D printing in space. The material used here is a base fluid mixed with magneto rheological (MR) or electro rheological (ER) fluids. This would allow any object to be made inside or outside of the spacecraft on a temporary or permanent basis. This is designed specifically for the tools and parts which would be required during a long duration manned space mission. This printer is much more compact and has lower weight as compared to present solutions, and the fluid used here is reusable. Moreover, this technology can bring a revolution in long-distance space travel by radically decreasing the material requirement and redundancies which are needed during a space voyage.
