Actually R-16 / SS-7 Saddler. The R-7 was already getting old when he said it in 1960.

I need a 3d printer that can print in Inconel... or better yet a radial braider over a mandrel for CF.

The startup showcased this ability by 3D printing a quadcopter that, once completed, was able to fly off of its printbed.
I like the 3d printing of pcbs, just what I need for my homebuild Segway...

The ability to 3D print without gravity restraints will allow those aboard the ISS to 3D print tools and parts using raw material, preventing the need for direct shipments of such objects from Earth. This ability is an exciting one, but the true goal of NASA and Made In Space has been to 3D print in vacuum of space itself. Today, Made In Space has announced that such a feat has now been proven possible through a series of tests performed here on Earth.

Its a start, a small one. If they prove its feasible, excellent.
Just have to see if its economic after that, you still have to get the raw materials up there.

Maybe they could print the Space Elevator...
