We’ll refrain from giving away all of the other ‘must-see destinations’ in this August issue – but a couple of key mentions include The Victoria & Albert Museum and Clerkenwell.

Thank you for the mention!

3D Printing Metal in Space?

To continue our Space-related metal theme: Announced earlier this Summer – NASA is planning on using 3D printing technology – get this – in space.  The intent is to place a special 3D Printer on-board the International Space Station.  This would allow Astronauts to replace the Space Station’s worn, broken, or lost parts, and perhaps even develop new pieces – for needs as they arise.  3D CAD data, developed here on earth, can then be transmitted to the Space Station’s 3D printer for fabrication.  From what we can glean, the printer will be producing plastic pieces when flown to the ISS next Summer.  We are guessing it will only be a short amount of time before metal parts are being printed off-world.

How in the world does this relate to SA Baxter?  We welcome when Designers and Architects email us their 3D CAD models of door knobs, levers, and pulls, from the other side of the country, even half way around the world, for use in their bespoke projects.  Our in-house 3D printer and digital fabrication technologies, allow us to quickly and accurately produce the most gorgeous custom hardware in the world, perhaps even otherworldly hardware…all here at our Hudson Valley Foundry and Atelier.  Who do we talk to about having our hardware grace the International Space Station?
