Student team uses micro-metal 3D printing for microgravity experiment (

When a team of students, led by Rohan Sachdeva (12th grade student) and Daisy Zeng (11th grade student), from the International Space Station Research (ISS) Lab Program at Valley Christian High School needed millimeter-scale lattices for an experiment on capillary action in microgravity, they turned to Qualified3D to get parts printed using micro-stereolithography. The lattices designed by the San Jose, CA based team had struts as thin as 0.5mm in diameter, and micro-SLA seemed to be the only process able to produce parts with sufficient accuracy.
