The aim of the RegoLight research project was the further development of existing 3D printing technologies and methods for the production of components on the lunar surface for future lunar missions. A team of architects, engineers, system developers and scientists tested the possibilities of sintering lunar regolitht simulants using the sun as an infinite energy source.
Bollinger+Grohmann was responsible for the derivation of material properties and elemental analysis of sintered specimens based on derived material properties and load cases. The evaluation of different building typologies performed several applicable load scenarios.
The project was funded by the "Horizon 2020" programme of the European Union for Research and Innovation under the Grant Agreement No. 686202.
