The first 3D printer in space came out for the first time. The 3D printer delivered to the ISS two months ago made a sample replacement part for itself this week. It makes a new panel for the print head case. The space station commander, Bouch Wilmore, took the small plastic product off the printer on Tuesday after a day of manufacturing. NASA spokesman Dan Huot said some plastic was glued to the printed tray. He noted that this is part of the learning process and will be investigated further. NASA says about 20 objects will be printed in the coming weeks, all for analysis back to Earth. The space agency hopes to one day use 3D printing technology to make parts for broken devices in space. \"an on- According to Niki Werkheiser, the project manager, \"demand machine store \".
