In situ resourcing

Combine that with this , and you could build what you need where it's needed.  This is contrasted with having to launch a rocket carrying it to where it is needed.  The machine gets taken there and just builds what you need at the location using the materials available at that location.  Saves a lot of mass and makes it easier to do what you want in space.  This assumes that the device can work in space.
