Under a new partnership, Stratasys Ltd. of Eden Prairie and Phoenix Analysis & Design Technologies, Inc.

This 3-D printed Orion docking hatch cover. By partnering with Lockheed Martin and PADT to develop these 3D printed spacecraft parts, Stratasys will enable both the NASA Orion capsule and spacecraft in the future to withstand conditions that are now very hard to address.

Lockheed Martin is one of the first customers leveraging Stratasys' Antero, using the new thermoplastic for a part situated outside of Orion's docking hatch. Launches into outer space is a new and welcome skillset for Stratasys, which is dually headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and Rehovot, Israel.

Stratatys said Tuesday it will provide advanced materials to the project such as the company's ULTEM 9085 resin and an electrostatic dissipative variant of the Anterro 800NA thermoplastic.

The Orion has the use of next generation materials with extremely efficient thermal, chemical and mechanical properties. The spacecraft will go thousands of miles beyond the Moon during an approximately three-week mission with unmanned Orion.

Orion's Exploration Mission-1 (EM-1) is the first integrated test of NASA's deep-space exploration systems, including the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and ground systems at Kennedy Space Center.

Reward posted for mystery man accused of threatening Stormy Daniels

EM-2, the next flight, also to fly near the Moon with astronauts on board, will help NASA to plan for increasingly complex missions in deep space.

The parts are being developed jointly by U.S. defence contractor Lockheed Martin, Stratasys, and engineering firm PADT using new materials that can withstand the extreme temperatures and chemical exposures of deep space missions.

USA contractor Lockheed Martin will reportedly make more than 100 3D printed spacecraft parts in order to supply the NASA Orion capsule.

Visitors to the Lockheed Martin booth at this week's 34th Space Symposium in Colorado Springs can see the aforementioned part on display through Thursday.

"We're not just creating parts, we're reshaping our production strategy to make spacecraft more affordable and faster to produce", he added.
