We focused on 3D printed syringes in space.First we considered the most practical solution on printing a syringe in space,we decided that the zero-gravity conditions and storage solutions would affect the final product and considered many designs. Our final prototype was made out of two pieces of hard polymer and one of soft, this allowed us to create the seal of the syringe. our team then focused mainly on two aspects of the syringe 1) dosages and shaping the syringe and 2) printing prototypes.

This project is solving the 3D AstroMed Devices challenge.


We aimed to develop a way to 3D print items such as syringes in space. These syringes needed to be accurate, simple and reliable. Printing allows us to create custom volume syringes with multiple uses using both rigid and flexible materials.
