Printed on a 3D printer, the research unit will go to Mars in the coming years

Manufacturer of 3D printers Stratasys is known for a number of large projects: he informed American clinics, and last year presented printed using their printers jet drone. Now the company has created the Mars research robot manufactured using the technology of 3D printing.

The Engineers report that this is still just a prototype, but developed on the basis of a complete apparatus designed to study Mars, plans to send a flight already in the next five years. It is assumed that it starts in the mission, which is prepared by scientists from Germany.

The Creators of the device explained that the development and creation of a usual prototype of the Mars Rovers and other research devices easily «cheap». And when you consider that before the final version , which also costs a lot of money, you need more reach, having made several intermediate options, the amount is altogether exorbitant. 3D printing also allows you to save a bad production, so the experts decided to use the opportunity.

According to the head of the research group which produced the prototype, their offspring will be able to withstand all the loads and handle the difficult conditions of Mars thanks to the very durable thermoplastic material from which the device is made.
