    @RandomCoder the application for this tech is mostly hot parts for production. example would be a part that gets a million dollar a day production line running again within a few hours rather than a day or two for the part to be shipped. to make individual production parts like a caliper wouldnt really make sense unless its for prototype purposes.

    It might not make sense to manufacture a caliper this way but when buying a car like Buggati I guess it doesn't need to make sense. It makes for quite a unique taking point. :D

    i saw an article a few years ago where parts were printed with metal and then put into a microwave to cure them

    we will be able to print anything at some stage in the future i believe

    this should be even "simpler" than 3d printing with plastic, it uses a lot less parts...
