3D printed gold metal

Does $325,000 sound cheap to you?  Maybe not, but in the world of 3D printing metals, that is cheap.  Today.  It may well not be tomorrow in the ultra competitive 3D printing market.

Do you geek out on 3D printing technical terms?  How about these:

  • Binder Jetting (BJ)
  • Material Jetting (MJ)
  • Powder Bed Fusion (PBF)
  • Vat Photo-polymerization (VA)
  • Directed Energy Deposition (DED)

That last one does it for me!

It’s quite strange to see such a high tech piece of machinery hiding away what it’s done, only for it to be revealed by someone with a low tech paint brush.  For $325,000 I would want a gold plated paint brush 🙂
