Mark One is a partner of SKYWARD EXPERIMENTAL ROCKETRY.
Skyward Experimental Rocketry is a student association active at the Politecnico di Milano, founded in 2012 with the ambitious goal of designing and producing small and medium size experimental rocket-probes. The Skyward team uses Mark One printers at all stages of rocket development: both to create models in the design phase for kinematic and space trials, and to produce finished components.
The partnership with Mark One made it possible to print a higher number of components and to prototype them faster, thus opening the door to a new frontier in research and development.
The light materials, the low production costs and the ability to try out real part couplings, have led team members to double the speed of achieving their goals by creating a vector that reaches 1.5 km in altitude, almost entirely printed in 3D.
