Sidus Space, a space and data-as-a-service company, has introduced its new Multi-Material 3D Printing Division. The company’s expertise now expands beyond traditional hardware and satellite manufacturing – offering innovative engineering and advanced 3D printing services.

The company recently utilized MarkForged X7 printers and OnyxFR-A material to manufacture structural support components in its LizzieSat satellite, which is scheduled to launch on Transporter 10 no earlier than March 2024. This material, reinforced with Carbon Fiber layers during the 3D printing process and featuring fire retardant properties, has enabled the creation of satellite parts that surpass the strength of aluminum while significantly reducing weight.

To ensure adaptability to the space environment, Sidus Space conducted thorough outgassing tests as per ASTM E595 standards. The results demonstrated impressive outcomes that proved compatibility with space operations.

Building on the success of constructing LizzieSat with the Onyx nylon 3D printed materials, Sidus Space is extending its capabilities to the broader market. The company offers a digital warehouse database for storing parts – allowing customers to print manufacturer-approved digital parts with ease. The service accommodates single or multiple units, and customers can opt to have their parts printed and delivered directly or have their clients print from Sidus Space’s digital warehouse of 3D models.

The Multi-Material 3D Printing Division specializes in composite materials, including Nylon Onyx, Onyx FR-A, Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass, and Kevlar. The company also offers 3D printing in PLA and TPU materials.

“Expanding our services to include multi-material 3D printing is a natural progression for Sidus Space. We are excited to offer our advanced capabilities to a wider audience, providing innovative…
