We are excited to attend the Sanjay Mortimer RepRap Festival (SMRRF) 2023 as an exhibitor, which took place in Oxford this weekend. It was a great pleasure to meet so many like-minded people and introduce and discuss our projects! On the stand we have hardware from our robot arm, chess board and 3D printing for science and communication projects in display. In the photo below we have our leaders of the last two projects, Oliver and Matthew.
As we are approaching to the end the academic year, the robotic arm baseline is almost finished and ready to run! Please enjoy some photos of the hard-working team:
Following the fantastic talk given by Dani Sors from Satellite Applications Catapult last term, we are thrilled to announce another talk about the space industry!
A huge thank you to Laura Gonzalez as well as everyone who came, it was really informative and we learned a lot about to the main advantages and challenges of 3D printing in the space industry.
We look forward to see everyone in our future speaker events!

He shared about the status of the space sector, key space technologies and examples of space technologies being developed around Oxford, specifically about the Harwell and Westcott campus of Catapult,
