A $1 Million 3D Printer Could Give You the Tiny Titanium Balls You've Always Wanted [3D Printing]


A src=This funky—and surprisingly tiny—ball was created out of pure titanium powder using a $1 million 3D printer. You could have one made for $124 to $192.

The ball—which has a 2cm diameter—was created by i.materialise, a company who is taking custom orders for titanium 3D prints right now. This is actually a new thing to be available to consumers, who have only been able to have plastic or stainless-steel 3D prints made up until now.

You can follow the link for more details on how to get your own titanium model printed, but I'll stay here and continue waiting for adamantium to become an option. [i.materialise via The Next Web via Courtney Boyd Myers]
