Reimagining the way orbital rockets are built and flown.

Stargate

gradient-overlay-v4.jpg

The largest metal 3D printer in the world.
Built for rockets.

Developed at Relativity.

Stargate is the backbone to our vertically integrated factory.

  • From raw material to flight in less than 60 days
  • Print a new rocket design just as quickly

Stargate is constantly getting smarter and faster by using sensors and reward function-based learning. We are creating an entirely new type of evolvable production line.

Relativity Space - Stargate - Largest Metal 3D Printer in the World
 

Proprietary materials.
Custom designed for printing.

  • Stronger alloys designed to take advantage of Stargate’s printing physics
  • Highly reliable materials for printing rocket structures
  • In-house metallurgy and material characterization lab
 

Intelligent process and quality controls.

  • Cloud-based simulation data
  • Real-time data
  • Post-process data
  • Advanced imaging and detection sensors
 

Collaborative robotics and path planning.

  • Multiple print heads: coordinate together to increase build rate
  • In-situ machining: allows traditionally impossible geometries to be built and finished in one step
  • Flexible: highly scalable system architecture
