Citation: GOULAS, A., 2014. 3D printing of lunar bases using moondust. Poster presented at Wolfson School Research Conference, 11 June 2014.
Abstract: An investigation into using Selective Laser Melting (SLM), a modern powder-bed fusion category Additive Manufacturing/3D printing process, in order to fabricate structures out of non-traditional multi-component ceramic materials such as lunar regolith (moondust). The overall aim of this research is to investigate the feasibility/suitability of the SLM method for on-site (on the moon) manufacturing of various structures, parts/replacements for future space applications.
Description: Winner of the first prize for the best poster, at the Wolfson School Conference 2014.
