Update on 3D Printing on “Mars”

The Habitat 3D printer was featured in a video for the New York Times that the crew recently filmed. The Daily 360 – Life on Mars: Get to Know the Crew

NYT Capture

HI-SEAS crew V has had fairly steady requests for new 3D printed designs for me to send them. The most recent was cookie cutters for Yuri’s Night (the anniversary of Yuri Gagarin being the first human to go to space – 4/12/61) so I designed Yuri Gagarin and Vostok 1 cookie cutters/stamps for them.


Designs available at my Thingiverse page

    cool. how does the cookie look?


    1. Still waiting for a report back from the crew


  2. Kahn-Yates has a striking design, with a printed structural layer giving way to a high-strength plastic layer that lets the light in. Their design is extremely spacious but in my eyes not very efficiently allocated. Who s going to bring apple trees to Mars? Why have a spiral staircase with such a huge footprint? Still, if they could pull it off, this would allow for a lot of breathing room, something that will surely be of great value during a year or multi-year stay on the planet.
