Shapeways – print in stainless steel

Shapeways – now you can print in stainless steel.

The process lays down a thin layer of stainless steel powder, this is bound by a binding material. Layer after layer is applied and the resulting model is then lifted out of the powder. The model is then heated, cured and infused with bronze. Then in this case it is polished. This is a very new process and we’re taking it straight out of the lab and bringing it to you.

    Very interesting! This would definitely save me the trouble of buying silverware ever again. How long does the whole process take? minutes? hours? I wonder if I could build a model Delorean out of solid stainless steel…
