How 3D Printer helps Rifath Sharook and his team to create KALAMSAT.

Let’s start it.

First thing is that we don’t want to take a credit of anyone’s work or invention.

Motive is to make people aware about the amazing world of 3d printer and its application in real life.

As we can see here Rifath Sharook, the man of the moment in Indian technocrat youth with his team invented world’s lightest satellite KALAMSAT.

The satellite will be launched by the US-based National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and weighs only 64 grams.

Named after India’s former President and nuclear scientist A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.

Story started with Tejas Patnawar ( CEO , I3D Minds ) who provides 3D printing service to all over India

Having state of the art Pratham series of 3d printer in-house at ICHALKARANJI, MAHARASHTRA.

Rifath Sharook and his team required to create prototype for their project and they comes in

Contact with Tejas Patnawar to make their work done by using  Pratham 3.0 3D Printer having

Capacity  to print carbon fiber material. ( you can see the video of printing )


According to Tejas Patnawar ( I3D Minds ) first Rifath Sharook and his team want to create the

same prototype with metal but as the weight is main constraint they go with the carbon fibre material to be print on

Pratham 3.0 3D Printer .

The main role of the satellite will be to demonstrate the performance of 3D-printed carbon fibre.

It’s  completely  designed from scratch. And already created world record.

This is how we can make our work easy by using 3d printer .

Don’t stop, start exploring the horizons of 3d printing  now !!!
