While journeys through space require a lot of resources, there’s only so much space missions can carry. This makes it especially difficult to carry tools and medical supplies, considering weight and spacial limits. While 3D printing has been helping with the former for quite some time, a new experiment could finally solve the issue of […]

While there are many ways of retrieving models of objects in the real world, they can often be inconvenient. Copying models can be messy and inaccurate but new photogrammetry technologies are showing vast improvements. In this same vein, Serbian researchers have shown that photogrammetry using relatively simple software and hardware can be very fruitful. This […]
