Abstract

Three Dimensional (3D) printing has recently gained much interest around the world. 3D printing essentially involves manufacturing 3D physical objects rendered from a three-dimensional image. 3D printing thus has found numerous applications in a wide range of industries including energy, biomedical, defense, and space and so on. In spite of all the promises, 3D printing is still considered as an evolving technology mainly due to its limitation including limited material selection, cost, and operating speed and process control. In order to fulfill the promised potentials of 3D printing, much research is needed to make the technology affordable, smart and easy-to-use. This research studies the feasibility of a smart 3D printer that can operate in a several of environments, including space. The proposed 3D printing technology works independent of gravity and can operate free of orientation. The design of the 3D printer takes into account several design considerations, including waste disposal/recycle, pollution control, design of the frame, thermodynamic effects due to changes in temperature, and operations in different orientations. An app will also be designed on a smartphone so that it can remotely control the 3D printer even from earth to outer space. The importance of smart 3D printing technology is expected to revolutionize the capabilities of additive manufacturing across several industries.
