Renishaw AM250 3D printer

The Renishaw AM250 prints using metal powders (stainless steel, aluminium, titanium etc). Full listing here:

It looks like a nicely designed machine. I like the way it handles the powders.

Something useful from the printer - a bike frame:

Dukejazz, I have heard the value of the machine is over $1 million, and the raw titanium powder used in the machine is ~$500/kg. :shock:
