✔️ Done. All Clean ✔️

Metal 3D Printers

It uses molten metal and jets it in small droplets onto a surface similary
to a standard inkjet paper printer and by connecting the metal droplets
a 3d object can be made. It could be considered world’s first molten
metal 3d printer

Since one of the design ideas behind
this machine is to make it widely available, the material it uses had to
be widely available and cheap so the main material is molten aluminum

While the basic technology sounds easy in theory
and has been used even 20 years ago in the past for some applications,
there are still many difficult technical obstacles to overcome. These
obstacles include reaching complex requirements like developing a
printhead that is resistant to abrasive properties of molten aluminum by
using ceramics, magnetic containment and getting drop-on-demand molten
metal droplets.

Vader is founded two years ago by Scott
and Zachary Vader, a father-son team. With Fall of 2015 being the
timeframe for the release of first working pre-production Mark 1

The price range of the first machine should
be around 250.000 USD which is much cheaper than currently available
commercial metal 3d printers.

Hopefully the Vader team
will be successful in bringing their machine to the market and start the
race for affordable HOME metal 3d printers. I want one! And I know some
of you want one too
