Two new advances in Materials Science – A 3D printing metal welder and aluminium 3D printing material
Two major advances in 3D printing in the past week.
Firstly a new aluminium based 3D material that allows metal to be printed for this first time – we’re quickly moving away from plastic being the only printable material and therefore we can move into much more viable product – likes cars and chainsaws for instance. The materiel is called Alumide from iMateriel.
The second development is 3D printing augmented with a MIG welder – “Molten3D TIG welding DIY metal 3d printer by Steve Delaire
