Engineers Reinvent Metal 3D Printing - Design News #3dprint

Engineers are reinventing 3D printing and additive manufacturing (AM). I don't mean the engineers at big 3D printer and AM companies, but independent engineers and engineering students in university labs. They're reinventing software that specifies materials selection , the functions included in a 3D printer, and even new methods of how 3D printers work . Now engineers have invented a method for 3D-printing solid metal parts with jetted liquid metal, not the typical powder metals used in selective laser sintering (SLS). This process does not produce parts like the ones we told you about made from liquid metal by North Carolina State University researchers. Instead, it updates R&D done in the early days of 3D printing for making full-density, structural, final production parts. Vader Systems, a father-and-son startup, has reinvented metals 3D printing by developing this pro...
