Generally, what happens is a powder alloy (I think a bronze) is
sintered and then baked. this is a porous material. That then is
then impregnated and fused with the metal of your final choice.
Nah not that Shapeways stuff, that’s very crude in comparison to the
stuff that’s coming out now.
The reason I posted this discussion topic, was because of this :-
Kindly provided by another list member. I’ve sent of an information
request to see if I can get some to share.
This level of tech is a vast improvement on the shapeways tech.
I checked out a few other industrial sites using sintered metals.
They are stating the same thing, that the level of porosity can be
controlled, and that the resultant items are stronger than castings
Just wondering if anyone on the list has tried the new tech yet?
