3D printing growing as we speak

Recommended Posts

I know we've beat this topic to death, but I'm really intrigued. I subscribe to Computerworld at work and this came up today. Just amazing stuff in a seemingly short amount of time!


Amazing. Thanks for keeping us informed.

Wouldn't 3D printing allow for hollow exhaust pipes without having to fabricate them from styrene or aluminum?

I'm thinking if they can do an aorta, a hollow pipe shouldn't be too tough!

Got a Travers Tool Co. catalogue the other day. They are selling a 3D printer by Afinia that is accurate to 0.15mm (.006 in.). Not sure if this is close enough for 1/25 scale but larger scale might do the trick with a little finishing work. The price seems within reason at $1599.00. You could probably spend more outfitting a mini machine shop!
