Interlocking building element

An extensive exploration of interlocking geometries was conducted. After thorough consideration of different structural typologies and construction principles, a single Tetrahedron-type geometry was selected as the essential building element…

x,y,z translation table

Based on the principles of an actual 3D printer, the x,y,z, translation table displaces the printing area (the regolith tray) under the fixed solar beam. The different trajectories that…

Regolith feeder

A feeding mechanism is developed to stock raw material in a sealed tank and to spread it on the printing area during the sintering process. Because of the abrasive…
