3D-printed parts for all

PRO­DUC­TION SYS­TEM DESK­TOP METAL

Popular Science - - BEST OF WHAT’S NEW 2017 -

At an in­dus­trial scale, 3D print­ing with shiny al­loys isn’t the next big thing. It’s just big. And big-ticket. Now com­pa­nies can forgo the seven-fig­ure mon­ster ma­chines for some­thing smaller and faster. This new six­fig­ure pro­duc­tion sys­tem uses an inkjet­like tech­nol­ogy to turn pow­der and a bind­ing agent into what­ever cold, hard wid­get you might de­sire—up to 100 times faster than the laser meth­ods used in cur­rent sys­tems.
