Can You Design a 3D Printed Rocket Engine to Send Nano-Satellites Into Space?


Display comments as (Linear | Threaded)

We would like to design and produce a sustainable model for a BioDome to provide for the growing of food using Aquaponics and Permaculture. We estimate that a 16' dome has the potential of providing food for a family of four.
This would be an exceptional project for a Shapeway open source design competition. Food shortages is already a critical problem world wide and experts predict far worse conditions for the future.
I would be honoured to work with you on this. I have yet to master 3D modeling, but do have a lifetime experience in art and design, including sculpting.

For a second I thought it might be April 1st.

You understand that if someone did create a 3d printable rocket engine it be worth a hell of a lot more than $7,500 right?
