Watch the video from IDA Space webinar: Additive Manufacturing (3D print) for and in space

Learn about 3D printing for and in space – an new innovative green technology. 3D printing reduces transport and waste and can print in sustainable materials. 3D printing is a technology under rapid development with several green potentials.

Denmark has a goal of achieving climate neutrality in 2050, so green transition is high on the agenda. To realize the green transition there is a need for new science and technologi. Space already plays an important role in identifying climate change and in contributing to the green transition and in the protection of our nature, environment and biodiversity.

In this webinar, experts will discuss which role space exploration has in solving some of the greatest challenges towards 2050.

3D printing in and for space can reduce the need for transportation of products, leading to a decrease in both time and fuel – and thereby CO2. Furthermore, 3D printed products can be made with less waste, they can be specifically designed, and the they can be more cost efficient to produce in smaller quantities. Finally, the products can be printed from lighter and in some cases bio degradable materials.

The webinar was organized on 18 November 2021 in a cooperation between IDA Space and the Space Exploration Denmark partnership as part of a series of webinars on Development of Green Science and Technology on ISS
