An ambitious new project aims to use 3D printing technology to produce objects made out of metal.
The ability to produce physical three-dimensional objects on demand from a printing device promises to revolutionize manufacturing processes in a variety of different industries. Low cost 3D printers are even set to make their way in to people\'s homes as the technology improves and prices come down.
Well 3D printed guns don't work, but I'm sure 3D printed metal ones will. Just what the world needs
Well yes, it could be used for that. There are a handful of metal printing companies out there. It can also be used for this... http://www.gizmag.co...ket-seds/29306/ 3D printed rocket
The bot article was condensed badly I think. If you click the source to the BBC link, it's a much better and fuller story.
Yes, I am a cynical and jaded jacknape. I try to see all three sides of the coin- do you?
Without artists, the worlds would be,

Whatever it is right now, or is not not, does not matter. 3D printing will revolutionise the global manufacturing industry just as the Industrial Age did about 100 years ago. And a bit further ahead biological 'spare parts' will be available too.
