Personal Response on 3D printing parts into space:
When I first heard about NASA 3D printing parts to the ISS, i didn't think that it was too big of a deal because we've had 3D printing for a long time. Now, after I've read this article, i see it in a different way. There were different factors involved, like the fact that heating things up in space is different and that it's zero gravity. It puzzles me to think that people can account. For these factors and change up the way the 3D printer works. After it explained this process, I was interested on how they printed it and what the calculations to do it were. All in all, I think this will be a great technology for the near future when NASA launches a mission to Mars.
Personal Response to 3D printing houses:
My dad was the one who showed me this and I was amazed at how they could 3D print buildings. With this technique, it may be more expensive but less human work is required to actually build the building. One of the amazing parts of this is that you can stop the process at any time, so you can wire the house and renovate it before it is done printing. With this technology, big neighborhoods can be put up within a year and less work would be involved. The only downside to this is that the houses won't be as strong unless you print it in a specific way or add rebar. This technology will definitely be helpful in the next society after it's perfected, but it's a great start.
