3D printers become more and more advanced day by day. But they have one major disadvantage by birth: They print in plastic. Ok, this may not me a disadvantage after all, but sometimes, you just need something stronger than this. Is titanium strong enough for you? i.materialise has launched the first consumer service which allows you to print in this remarkable metal. A thin layer of titanium powder (some 2 tenths of a millimeter) is placed down to surface, and using a strong laser, this layer is sintered. This process is known as Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS). More info here.
