On-Demand Spaceship Parts from Pink Goop?

One of the most fascinating technologies to be birthed out of the turn of the millennium is additive, or 3d, printing. And like many other scientific discoveries and inventions, it doesn’t take a ton of imagination to see how something like that might be useful in space. In fact, I …
