As TASS special correspondent and cosmonaut Oleg Artemiev said, the latest domestically developed 3D printer, created by the Energia RSC from the Roscosmos structure, has already arrived at the ISS and is fully prepared for printing.

Currently, the materials required for printing are expected, which will be delivered approximately during September by Soyuz MS-22, after which the team will go to experimental printing of parts and elements in space.

First of all, the astronauts will make a test print of simple cubes, after which the program is connected to the students, who are prepared using a specially designed part scheme program.
