Low-Cost, Open-Source 3D Metal Printer

The big news, this week, is MIT’s release of an open source 3D printer that uses metal. They estimate the printer can be built from $1,500 of materials. Compare that with the cost of commercial metal printers which cost over $500,000. This is definitely a development to watch closely.
