    Actually very interesting, if you take it at face value they have solved one of the biggest issues which is dealing with the metal powders safely.

    Cheers for sharing that - time to start saving ;)

    A good project but it reminds me of the Metal Clay idea, in fact if someone made a Metal Clay extrusion deposition system it would bypass all the new technology patents by using 100% prior art to get to a similar (possibly not quite as neat?) end result.

    but can I print a 6.3l V8 with it? lol in which case I'm there.

    Looks good for prototyping not sure about production though regardless what they say.

    If you didn't buy it from China the company you bought it from did ;)

    Well, no, not a V8 but it shows that the concept isn't fully nailed down by new patents and that means a possibility of the open source community doing something :D
