3D printing metal heats up, though cost and processing challenges likely to freeze adoption

Researchers from North Carolina State University developed a method using a low-cost 3D printer they developed to fabricate microstructures out of a binary eutectic alloy of gallium and indium, which is liquid at room temperature. As the material exits the syringe in spherical droplets, a 1 nm th...
