3D printed metal and electronics company Optomec, has been awarded a NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract to continue development of its Adaptive Laser Sintering System (ALSS).

Used as a post processing system for metal 3D printing, ALSS will enable electronics 3D printing onto a wider variety of temperature sensitive substrates, specifically for use on the International Space Station (ISS) in microgravity conditions.
