D-Shape, the European Space Agency, and the Moon


31 January 2013

Setting up a lunar base could be made much simpler by using a 3D printer to build it from local materials. Industrial partners including renowned architects Foster + Partners have joined with ESA to test the feasibility of 3D printing using lunar soil.

“Terrestrial 3D printing technology has produced entire structures,” said Laurent Pambaguian, heading the project for ESA.

“Our industrial team investigated if it could similarly be employed to build a lunar habitat.”

Foster + Partners devised a weight-bearing ‘catenary’ dome design with a cellular structured wall to shield against micrometeoroids and space radiation, incorporating a pressurised inflatable to shelter astronauts.

A hollow closed-cell structure – reminiscent of bird bones – provides a good combination of strength and weight.

D-Shape Enterprises can save N.Y.C. USD $2.9 billion dollars in waterfront restoration and protection

Enrico Dini’s D-Shape has been featured here several times as it’s the largest 3D printer to date. With a build envelope of 6 x 6 meters, it can print entire houses. It operates by depositing a special binder onto layers of sand, creating an artificial sandstone that is structurally superior to “Portland Concrete” andsimilar to marble. For this reason, as well as others, D-Shape was recently awarded first place in the New York City Economic Development Corporation’s (NYCEDC) waterfront repair contest called “Change the Course.” The $50,000 prize was to draw innovative methods of redeveloping 565 miles of NYC’s coast, much of which was especially damaged after Superstorm Sandy.
