      Sidus Space is debuting a new, multi-material 3D printing division for engineering and advanced 3D printing services, the company announced Thursday. Sidus Space used MarkForged X7 printers and OnyxFR-A material to manufacture components in its LizzieSat satellite, and is now rolling out these capabilities to customers. 

      Sidus said the OnyxFR-A material, reinforced with carbon fiber layers, can create satellite parts that the company says have more strength than aluminum while reducing weight. The multi-material 3D printing division specializes in composite materials, including nylon onyx, onyx FR-A, carbon fiber, fiberglass, and kevlar. The company also offers 3D printing in PLA and TPU materials. 

      “Expanding our services to include multi-material 3D printing is a natural progression for Sidus Space. We are excited to offer our advanced capabilities to a wider audience, providing innovative solutions for various industries,” said Carol Craig, CEO and founder of Sidus Space. “This strategic move not only showcases our commitment to innovation but also establishes another revenue stream for Sidus Space.”
