Revolutionary new process for refining titanium
« on: December 12, 2013, 04:51:41 AM »
This process ( http://www.3ders.org//articles/20131209-low-cost-titanium-powders-used-in-3d-printing-for-the-first-time.html  ) for producing pure titanium may not relate so much to Bukobots but as a retired Mining Engineer who has worked on designs for a titanium sands mine I am excited.  If genuine it seems to be a radical improvement in titanium and other metal oxide systems.  Aluminum, iron, and other oxides might also have a paradigm shift.   Others out there would know more of the possibility of some kind of  'Laybrick' filament using titanium powder then putting our printed parts in a sintering furnace to burn off the binding compound and fuse the particles.  One can dream.
