The airline Airbus is planning to build a satellite into space from the wreckage, for which the corporation will build a plant there. And the first “for review” 3D printer flies
A 3D printer is needed to build a space plant to build a satellite from Airbus under zero gravity
You will need a 3D printer to build a space factory to build a satellite from Airbus with zero gravity.
European space agency Airbus will send a metallic 3D printer to the International Space Station in 2023, next year. This will be the first step in Airbus’ plan to build a satellite factory in orbit.
We wrote earlier that Apple has introduced “chips” for the new iOS 16. A printer called Metal3D can work with molten metals at a temperature of 2100 degrees Fahrenheit (1200 degrees Celsius). It will be the first metallic 3D printer on the space station, Airbus said in a statement, allowing astronauts to print parts such as radiation shields and various equipment.
Now they will be able to make radiation shields and various tools with the help of a space mini-factory at zero gravity.

Earlier, the American company Made in Space, now an associate of Redware, sent several 3D printers to the space station, but none of them could print with metal. Now, in addition to printing metallic products, future versions of 3D printers will be able to create objects using lunar soil, as well as recycle old satellite parts.
Airbus’ solution is to launch a kit of components to assemble into space using robotic weapons from our space plant, the company said in a statement.
Robotic weapons will be able to make each other in orbit, but they can also be used to repair and fuel spacecraft. The company also said it expects to build a full satellite into space in the next three to four years.
