Radically simpler 3D printing rockets with less than 100 parts instead of nearly 100,000

Relativity Space is 3D printing rockets. Rocket Labs is also trying to 3D print rockets. Relativity Space is making a rocket that has 4 times the thrust of the Rocket Labs rocket. Relativity rocket engine will still have ten times less thrust than the SpaceX merlin engine. Relativity Space wants is reimagining the way rockets are built and flown with massive 3D printing. * 1000X fewer parts. * 10X faster iteration * entirely 3D printed In 2017, the first complete printing of their rocket reduced vehicle part count from nearly 100,000 to under 1,000 components – and was first step … Continue reading Radically simpler 3D printing rockets with less than 100 parts instead of nearly 100,000
