Ever wonder what an above-ground Mars habitat could look like if it were built by a group of autonomous robots? If so, Hassell Studio shows us their proposal, which was also entered into NASA’s international 3D Printed Habitat Challenge. The team partnered with structural engineers at Eckersley Oā€™Callaghan (EOC) and it consists of an external shell made from local Martian regolith. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.


These shells would be built in advance by autonomous robots before exploration teams arrived to construct the interior, or a series of inflatable ā€˜podsā€™ that have everything needed for life on Mars. Their goal was to bring a more human element to space design by making it a home away from home where astronauts can carry out the most important work in the history of space exploration.

ANYCUBIC Photon Mono LCD 3D Printer, Fast Printing UV Photocuring Resin 3D Printer with 6.08'' 2K Monochrome LCD, 5.11"(L) x 3.14"(W) x 6.49"(H) Printing Size
  • ANYCUBIC Photon Mono LCD screen Adopts matrix parallel light source 15 pcs lamp beads, is able to carry out uniform exposure, improve the quality of models, Z-axis guide rail structure and stepper motor have better stability, with an accuracy of 0.01mm, it effectively eliminating layer patterns, It's a great 3D printer for printing games, movies, cartoon characters, miniatures, etc.
  • Photon Mono 3D Printer's printing speed is 2.5X faster than the regular 3d printers, rapid prototyping greatly improved printing efficiency and saved more time, comes with a 6.08'' 2K Monochrome LCD and only takes 1.5 seconds per layer exposure to cure resin.
  • Off-line printing function with size 5.11"(L) x 3.14"(W) x 6.49"(H) / 130 x 80 x165MM, Photon Mono resin 3d printer uses a removable one-piece transparent cover to make the internal space of the machine, and the printer can be set to stop printing immediately after opening the cover, Friendly use for beginners and good performance for the enthusiasts
  • The transparent cover blocks up to 99.95% of ultraviolet rays with a wavelength of 405nm, can be effective high resin solidification rate and ensure your success printing, reduce wasting of resin, New photon mono uses One-piece FEP, which can be easier and quicker to replace
  • All of our 3d printers provide one month free return and exchange, one year warranty (exclude consumable parts like LCD screen & FEP film) and lifetime technical support, If you encounter any problems, please feel free contact us
