Danish Origami Space Habitat

This venture may have what it takes to qualify as a new, independent topic.

The construction method should work on Mars, which would be a ** much ** less severe environment than the Moon, and not too different from Greenland.

Re: Danish Origami Space Habitat

Most people here seemed to think that cylinders or spheres are the best best for a pressurised environment...looks like this would have multiple hinges all over - surely hundreds of weak points all over.

I've posted previously about the possibly of creating quick assembly habs for Mars, with a system similar to this Chinese one:

I think the pressurisation problem can be addressed with girders attaching the walls/floors/ceilings. After all the lunar lander wasn't that spherical or cylinder like...

Re: Danish Origami Space Habitat

Danish Space Research Institute was very active now most of its work is done through ESA, it took part in joint missions with NASA's Viking program Mars lander/Orbiter, the ESA Chinese Cluster DoubleStar mission Earth observation satellites and Planck CMB spacecraft. The old Space Agency is now replaced by DTU Space.

Boxabl Is Building Modular Foldable Homes That Can Be Setup in an Hour

https://medium.com/democratizing-financ … aa61cddc8a

Boxabl is a company that manufactures "Boxabls" which are 20x20 mini-homes that can be stacked and re-arranged, built in a factory, mass produced, and towed by most vehicles. They can be set up in about an hour upon arrival. This allows people to purchase smaller units of a home then slowly add onto the homes as they can afford it, and could help solve the continued housing crisis around the world. They currently produce 2-4 a day, but looking to produce as much as 1 every 90 minutes as they ramp up. This could lower the burdens to home ownership, as they are about the size of an apartment, and the traditional American family is becoming increasingly smaller, and the burdens that come with home ownership increase.

Re: Danish Origami Space Habitat

This Futuristic Space Condo Is Designed to Squish Into SpaceX's Starship
https://futurism.com/the-byte/futuristi … x-starship
"Hopefully, we are going to learn a lot about living on the Moon."

With the help of Danish space design company SAGA Space Architects, a team of students at a Swiss boarding school designed what they call the Rosenberg Space Habitat (RSH), a futuristic three-story space condo — designed to perfectly fit inside a SpaceX Starship.

Using state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, SAGA's partners in Denmark and Italy then brought the vision to life, installing it at the school's "Future Park," a self-sustaining, "experimental outdoor space," according to a press release.

The RSH — "the world's tallest 3D-printed polymer structure" — is an impressive 23 feet high. It's meant to allow students at the Institute auf dem Rosenberg to learn about what it takes for humans to thrive in space.

To make the experience extra convincing, the team even added a pet: a resident robot in the form of a Boston Dynamics Spot robodog.

3D Printed House: 25 Most Important Projects
https://all3dp.com/2/3d-printed-house-3 … -building/

I think it would be good if Mars had an 'assembler' site, that is for example with its own independent power, the assembler is inside a nuke powered factory or 'Android' that receives a compressed assembled 'parts' as payload and it builds a fleet of what ever is need on Mars. The plan for a 2d origami to become 3d and economically work perhaps 'In situ' literally to "on site" and "locally". Unassembled 3d cars and homes are shipped but most of the material is in fact from Mars but the more complex parts are from Earth. The Android assembles the helicopters or Cars or whatever, Perhaps a combo of unfolded Rover Wagons, Origami Diggers which self assemble themselves like a kinex K'Nex or Meccano Waffle Blocks Lego toy, the more difficult to design high tech components will be shipped from planet Earth. The Lower tech colony try evolved and will build a higher tech colony even before humans arrive. Unfolded Trucks or Train or wagons make hauling chemical and material a breeze, like the JWST unfolded the Trucks would unfold, as people move out of NewYork and California they use collapsing storage boxes, moving from 2d space to larger 3 d space and storing item and moving valued material Collapsible Containers.

In recent years, folding techniques are widely used by many architects to make 3D forms from 2D sheets as an inspiration for their design, which enables simpler and more intuitive solutions for architectural realization. This research provides an overview of using folding techniques in architecture design, with an emphasis on their new applications. In this overview, we classify folding techniques as computation geometry folding techniques and manual folding techniques. Finally, we provide recommendations for future development.

Re: Danish Origami Space Habitat

We have seen many advances in AI and human looking robots but Can Humanoid Robots do Origami Yet?

We have seen Robotics with Spider like Limbs, Octopus like Tentacles, Highly Dexterous Robot Hand, an Arm on the Japanese Cargo vehicle, Dextre with Canadarm2, the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator – affectionately known as Dextre – is equipped with 15 degrees of freedom and a delicate sense of touch, and is considered the most sophisticated space robotic system in operation and the Chinese with their own verison of Canadarm on their Tiangong station, they may be called the Wentian robotic arm or another the Chinarm robotic arm mechanical arm called the indexing robotic arm. The Chinese design no doubt seems inspired or almost copies the ISS Canadian-style SSRMS robotic arm manipulator with their own unique additions. On Earth every major truck, bike and car manufacturer company have done their own research into what would be the best a series of robotic arms.

Origami Robots unfolding and helping find resources, building space colonies

while allowing AI to design, Artificial Intelligence finds new Origami shapes

Origami brought to life for robot exploration
https://www.electronicsweekly.com/news/ … n-2024-05/

I think a lot of storage sites or radiation shelters might first be unfolded, a building or structure designed to hold Rovers or Helicopters also unfolded where the vehicles can be protected and cleaned. As the colony starts expanding a large Martian region, indoor food storing, perhaps a site with trade or shopping, leisure center area also unfolded, usually built on Earth culture ideas and anchored by history libraries, vacation sites, rest rooms, farms, stores. The Origami might first provide the frame or blueprint of a structure, Mars sand or soil built up around these domes and structures to make them more secure, or perhaps some type of Mars Concrete is 3-D printed, to compensate for pressure and mass perhaps different pressure rooms and structures of shells within other structures use of an Arc or Rectangles, arches, and triangles are the most common shapes used to build big structures, as the weight pushes down. AI might come up with unique designs, a mix of Origami Shapes and use of traditional Structural Loads for an expanding colony.

Robots might have a village and city ready for the humans before they arrive.

I think the age of sending already made satellites into space is over, everything will probably be flat packed in some kind of flat space origami technology and self assemble

The EPFL research, which has been published in Nature Machine Intelligence, shows the promise of modular robotics for space travel.

"Our aim with Mori3 is to create a modular, origami-like robot that can be assembled and disassembled at will depending on the environment and task at hand," says Jamie Paik, director of the Reconfigurable Robotics Lab.

"Mori3 can change its size, shape and function."

Re: Danish Origami Space Habitat

reducing space by 75% flat space ideas and making folded patterns even smaller


Origami anything
https://news.mit.edu/2017/algorithm-ori … cture-0622
New algorithm generates practical paper-folding patterns to produce any 3-D structure.

Cerrillos artist folds a giant origami garden out of metal
https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/cerrill … 00993.html

It may seem impossible to conceive, now that this structure is a 4,000-pound metal horse. But at one point, somebody lovingly folded its design with their bare hands.

You can see the creases and can deduce from the angular nature of the sculpture's limbs that this was a paper horse that probably stood on its own power.

Then, after an ancient technique modified to produce modern results, the work grew to several times its original size and weight.

Visitors can stand beneath the monumental sculptures at Florigami — the traveling exhibit created by Kevin and Jennifer Box that is currently housed in their front yard — and wonder about how they were made. The truth, says Kevin Box, is that each of the pieces can take up to a year to create using a process he's worked on for years.

"I pioneered a technique that employs the ceramic shell, lost-wax casting process to transform the paper into museum-quality metals like bronze, aluminum, and stainless steel," says Box of his pieces, some of which stand 30 feet tall. "Lost-wax casting is a 6,000-year-old, 35-step, 12-week process, if everything goes right. Many of the pieces take a year to create, since every step is done by hand in a foundry. The bonus was recognizing that certain pieces could scale up infinitely using sheet metal fabrication. The simple fact that origami begins as a flat piece lends itself to cutting flat sheets of metal and welding them into the complex forms."

Box, born in Oklahoma and now based in Santa Fe, never set out to be an origami artist — much less a creator of giant origami. But in the early days of his practice, he says everybody who saw his work likened it to origami.

So instead of fighting the perception, he leaned into it. He contacted accomplished origami artist Robert Lang and inquired about collaborating. Lang was immediately receptive, and for the last 15 years, they've turned paper art into metal. A number of other artists have also worked with Box to create larger-than-life sculptures.

Box worked for many years at a fine art foundry in Texas and developed a fabrication studio at his home. Several of the pieces in the Florigami exhibit are made out of aluminum on the premises.

The team's lead fabricator, Eben Markowski, says he and Box are among the few artists in the state who are also certified welders.
