BAH Pauses Production During Expansion | August 2019

We’re excited to announce that Boyce Aerospace Hobbies is expanding.

Our current printing capabilities have been pushed to the limits due to continued patronage from customers who enjoy Rocketry as much as we do. So, we’re investing in additional 3D printers to help decrease production times and to bring customers quality 3D-printed kits and parts faster. In an effort to ensure we continue delivering great customer service with exceptional products, Boyce Aerospace Hobbies is pausing production...

Master Replicas 3D Prints Buzz Aldrin's Boot Print

Last month we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing (July 20th) with our largest sale yet! But, with a moment so special you may want to celebrate every day. Master Replicas has created a 3D printed memento of this “small step for man.” Master Replicas has chosen to 3D-print Buzz Aldrin’s boot print on the moon’s surface here in the USA, carefully crafted out of resin and measuring 17x11 inches. The highly detailed model was created using a technique called stereoscopic imaging. The company has received more than 400 preorders, but don’t worry, they will not...

NASA Funds 3D Printing Projects

Posted by Alexander Boyce on

Just 65 years after the initial Apollo Mission, NASA is planning to return astronauts to the surface of the Moon by 2024. The Moon to Mars approach has the goal to create a habitat capable of sustaining life on the Moon. Recently, NASA just secured funding for 18 early-stage 3D printing projects developing technologies to help on its next mission to the Moon. These projects are among 363 proposals that have received over $43 million from NASA. In recent years, 3D printing experiments in Lunar and Martian regolith have demonstrated the potential to build habitats. And, NASA’s own 3D Printed Habitat Challenge has also...
