In Relativity Space will create a new 3D printers for the production of a cargo of missiles

To create the rocket will take no more than a month.

A new startup called Relativity Space is planning to use 3D printers for production of a cargo of missiles that will reduce their cost by 10 times, writes TechCrunch.

The creators of Relativity Space – a former specialist company Blue Origin Tim Ellis and a former employee of SpaceX, Jordan nun. In their view, the creation of missiles with the help of 3D printing in the future “unavoidable” and would like to be one of the first in this field.

It is reported that the makers of Relativity Space did not invent the idea of printing of rocket parts on a 3D printer. This technology is already available, but the process is slow and more expensive than other technologies. So the startup has taken the path of creating your own 3D printers from scratch.

These printers will reach six feet in height and will be able to create rocket fuel tanks for ten days, and the entire rocket for a month. Now people to create rockets need several times more time.

By 2021, the company Relativity Space intends to start production 30-meter rockets with a total startup cost of around $10 million Is about ten times less than is spent now.

As reported Корреспондент.netearlier, the head of the company SpaceX Elon Musk has shown how to assemble launch vehicles Falcon at the factory in Hawthorne, California.
