Sidus Space’s Revolutionary 3D-Printed Satellite Highlighted by Markforged

Sidus Space, Inc. (NASDAQ:SIDU), a Space-as-a-Service satellite company focused on mission-critical hardware manufacturing; multi-disciplinary engineering services; satellite design, production, launch planning, mission operations; and in-orbit support, is pleased to unveil a video from its partner, Markforged, who is a key player in Sidus’ 3D-printed LizzieSat™ satellites. The video is featured on Markforged’s YouTube channel.

A renowned additive manufacturing corporation, Markforged is the innovator behind The Digital Forge – a full-spectrum industrial platform of 3D printers, software, and materials which empowers manufacturers like Sidus Space to craft parts when and where they need them.

“Markforged 3D printers initially played an important role in our successful External Flight Test Platform (EFTP) mission, an on-orbit external experimental facility that was hosted on the NanoRacks International Space Station External Platform (NREP),” commented Carol Craig, Sidus Space Founder and CEO. “Building on the success of our EFTP program, we have continued to leverage Markforged solutions in the development of LizzieSat™.”

Sidus Space’s LizzieSat™ multi-purpose constellation is designed to meet the precise conditions of commercial and governmental demands in our increasingly interconnected, cloud-based, and data-driven world. The LizzieSat™ platform aims to take advantage of a shift away from static and low-frequency satellite imaging and geospatial solutions toward on-demand access of real-time geospatial intelligence.

By leveraging Markforged 3D printers, Sidus Space has been able to fabricate components quickly and effectively for multiple programs, which enables the Company to meet customer requirements in a cost-effective and timely manner.

“Markforged has been an incredible partner to us over the years,” remarked Craig. “We are honored to be highlighted in one of their videos, as it speaks to our commitment to providing innovative, reliable and cost-effective solutions to our customers.”
