Allevi and Made In Space Join Hands To Develop 3D Printing For Outer Space

3D Bioprinting company Allevi, formerly known as BioBots and California-based 3D printing and space technology firm Made In Space, have partnered to develop the Allevi ZeroG – the first 3D bioprinter in space launched at the recent ISS Conference in San Francisco, and also found the first two users of the new 3D bioprinting platform in Astronauts, Mark Vendei Hei and Randy Bresnik. Allevi also developed a compatible extruder, fittingly called the ZeroG bio-extruder, that is able to be outfitted onto Made In Space’s Additive Manufacturing Facility currently on board the ISS.
