Case Studies

3D printing of high-performance polymer composites for the lunar rover application

To lower the total weight of the rover while keeping its high mechanical properties using hybrid fabrication processes.

To decrease the heat losses of the rover structure, preventing the internal electronics from reaching destructive cold temperatures during lunar nights.
