Note: SJ-10 Chinese satellite results. From the abstract: "As a simple, fast and effective 3D printing method, direct-ink-writing (DIW) has potential applications in repairing the circuit board in orbit, printing the wearable devices for the astronaut, and producing the solar cells for the energy supply in space. To expand the DIW technology to space, we designed the colloidal material box (CMB) as the prototype printer of DIW and verified its applicability in the Chinese SJ-10 satellite."
