3D Printing in Space
Committee on Space-Based Additive Manufacturing ∙ Aeronautics andSpace Engineering Board ∙ National Materials and Manufacturing Board ∙ Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences ∙ National Research Council
NAS Press | 2014 | ISBN: 0309310083 9780309310086 | 101 pages | PDF | 13 MB

This volume evaluates the prospects of in-space additive manufacturing, examines the various technologies available and currently in development, and considers the possible impacts for crewed space operations and robotic spacecraft operations.

Ground-based additive manufacturing is being rapidly developed by industry, and 3D Printing in Space discusses government-industry investments in technology development.
According to this report, the International Space Station provides an excellent opportunity for both civilian and military research on additive manufacturing technology.
Additive manufacturing presents potential opportunities, both as a tool in a broad toolkit of options for space-based activities and as a potential paradigm-changing approach to designing hardware for in-space activities.
This report makes recommendations for future research, suggests objectives for an additive manufacturing roadmap, and envisions opportunities for cooperation and joint development.
