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 O’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 ‘pods’ 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.
- ◆EASY TO USE◆：Easy to set up, leveling was a breeze. Software is relatively simple to use. Only 4 settings far fewer settings to adjust vs FDM printer.
- ◆INCREDIBLE RESOLUTION◆：Make tiny parts with accuracy, much smoother detail and quality than the FDM printer.
- ◆FAST SHIPPING◆: Multiple models on a build plate don't add to the build time. A larger miniature takes about 2-3 hours, 6 at once takes the same 2-3 hours.
- ◆INDUSTRIAL QUALITY◆: All of the faces have a perfect satin finish. Any curves, chamfers, or bevels are are flawless. All of the blue bits and all of the red knobs are anodized.
- ◆AFTER-SALE SERVICE◆:All ANYCUBIC 3D printers are backed with lifetime technical support;any questions regarding product operation or software please feel free to contact us.
