Production Level Desktop Metal 3D Printing

Get ready for a true transformation in manufacturing.  3D printing of metal prototypes (additive manufacturing) has been around for a few years but the cost is high, the volume is low and the process messy.  A new company is rolling out both small and production volume versions of 3D metal deposition printers.  They are 10x less expensive than current laser production equipment.   This will mean reshoring to the U.S. of manufacturing that involved messy and environmentally problematic metal casting as well as expensive and one-by-one CNC machining.  See the article here:  http://goo.gl/ze4mau
