Joe Munchak, Research Meteorologist, Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland Using the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory satellite, launched in 2014, NASA and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency researchers have taken the first 3D images of raindrops and snowflakes. The GPM snapshots will help research meteorologist Joe Munchak determine precipitation rates and support the improvement of weather models.

Product of the Month

Stratasys, Eden Prairie, MN, introduced the J750 3D printer that produces full-color, multi-material prototypes and parts in a single 3D print without post-processing. Users can choose from more than 360,000 different color shades plus multiple material properties ranging from rigid, to flexible and opaque, to transparent. Prototypes such as tooling, molds, jigs, and fixtures can include an array of colors, materials, and material properties in the same part. The printer is supported with PolyJet Studio™ software that allows users to choose materials, optimize the build, and manage print queues. Assignment of colors, transparencies, and rigidity is accomplished via familiar design controls. Color textures can be loaded fully intact via VRML files imported from CAD tools. Featuring a large, six-material capacity, the printer keeps the most-used resins loaded for printing.

Products of Tomorrow: June 2016

The technologies NASA develops don’t just blast off into space. They also improve our lives here on Earth. Life-saving search-and-rescue tools, implantable medical devices, advances in commercial aircraft safety, increased accuracy in weather forecasting, and the miniature cameras in our cellphones are just some of the examples of NASA-developed technology used in products today.
