Hotend for Metal FDM, Part 2

posted on 09 Mar 2014 | 3d printing | hardware | brainstorming

What if you could do something like SLS but with a hot tip? Take a 1200C tip and move around the work surface melting tiny metal beads. Alternatively, use a torch.

Or perhaps metal beads could be extruded with FDM and fused later with a laser or in a kiln.
