THE CHALLENGE: Print My Rocket

Design a rocket that could be built in place inside one of the four bays of the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) at Kennedy Space Center, which is 525 ft (160 m) tall. Utilize additive manufacturing (aka 3D printing) where possible, considering which materials might be able to be used and which ones may have to be brought in already manufactured.


The Open Rocket Framework consists of a core set of extensible 3D Printed Structural Components that can be interchanged based on the rocket use-case

  • Scalable from traditional single stage to multistage rockets with options to innovate your propulsion system
  • Standardized Structural components allow for simplified 3rd party integration
  • 3D Printed Structural Components allow for Seamless structures using available Additive material
