Project Description

Evaluation of Computed Axial Lithography for rapid, volumetric additive manufacturing under low-gravity conditions

The evaluation of Computed Axial Lithography (CAL) for rapid, Volumetric Additive Manufacturing (VAM) under low-gravity conditions experiment will test a new additive manufacturing technique that enables contactless printing of biomaterials and engineering resin using the principles of computed tomography. The objective for a parabolic flight test is to successfully print both biomaterial and engineering components in the same machine during microgravity conditions. The data from this flight test – including fluid flow velocity refractive index and printing accuracy – will demonstrate the technique’s scalability.
