Lunar Resources, Americarsquo;s leading space industrial company and the corporate spin-out of NASArsquo;s Wake Shield Facility (WSF) program propose to NASA a novel 3D printing system optimized for the lunar environment.nbsp; The system is an innovative combination of unique mass control in an ultra-energy-efficient pulsed power printing head to perform direct additive manufacturing of lunar regolith without any reagents.nbsp; Together this new technology enables additive manufacture of lunar structures from lunar regolith and in-situ derivative materials by printing from any direction to make structures with geometries and complexity not before possible on the Moon.
