Sigma Labs and Michigan Technological University to Co-Develop Low-Cost 3D Metal Printer

Whoa! That came out of left field. Sigma Labs, known for its PrintRite3D in-process quality control technology for 3D printing, has just announced a potential partnership with Michigan Technological University to support the development of its low-cost 3D metal printer. The, originally open source, 3D metal printer was developed out of the Michigan Tech lab of Professor Joshua Pearce and used arc welding to 3D print solid metal objects for just over $1,000. On December 20, 2013, the two institutions established a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that laid out their intentions to work together in finalizing their 3D metal printer, which, at this stage, requires “3- or 5-axis machining to take the parts to final form”, according to the press release.
