The device works well and has practical benefit. It was learned that due to the “gadget” was made socket wrench. The need for it arose Barry Wilmore, crew commander.

He did not invent the wheel. He sent a drawing tool from the Earth. As soon as possible. Instructions for making “thrown off” right on the email.

That in all these surprising? Previously wrench needed to wait long – about 30 days. With the in-orbit delivery of a cargo ship.

Now these items are created directly on the ISS. Need a code for 3D-platform. Which received data into comprehensible format, print out the object automatically.

This is, without a doubt, will allow astronauts a little less dependent on supplies from the planet. Become more independent.
