3D Printing with metal

It’s very thrilling for everybody they can make their Christmas ornaments at home they can put their names on them they can modify whatever design they like so here it is. According to Joshua Pearce Engineers of Michigan Technological University in Houghton, ¨have designed a 3D metal printer that can be made with less than $1,500 of materials and open-source software,

3D printing would benefit people in the developing world, who have limited access to manufactured goods, and researchers, who can radically cut the cost of scientific equipment to further their science. Small and medium-sized enterprises would be able to build parts and equipment quickly and easily using downloadable, free, and open-source designs, which could revolutionize the economy for the benefit of the many.

I really don’t know if we are mature enough to handle it, but I think that with the open-source approach, we are within reach of a Star Trek-like, post-scarcity society, in which ‘replicators’ can create a vast array of objects on-demand, resulting in wealth for everyone at very little cost. Pretty soon, we’ll be able to make almost anything.”
