NASA Seeks 3D Printing

NASA's Langley Research Center has posted an invitation for solicitations for a "high resolution 3D printer". At first we thought this device might be headed to outer space, ready to rapidly produce any missing spacecraft parts during deep space missions. However, we then saw the specs: 110 VAC power requirement. Of course, we all know that AC power extension cords simply aren't long enough to reach Outer Space!

Vendors, this competition closes on March 3rd 2008.

Kerry Stevenson, aka "General Fabb" has been writing Fabbaloo posts since he launched the venture in 2007, with an intention to promote and grow the incredible technology of 3D printing across the world. So far, it seems to be working!
