Creating a prototype out of metal means having to send the job to a third-party manufacturer, but the 'Desktop Metal' 3D printer aims to change this with a design that can do it all from the comfort of your own office or home.

The 3D printer is capable of printing projects using steel, aluminum or titanium and is reported to offer cost savings of about ten-times when compared to standard industry manufacturing rates. This comes as a truly revolutionary way to create models, prototypes and much more without having to do any outsourcing.

The 'Desktop Metal' 3D printer comes with a furnace that gives your finalized projects a thermal treatment to ensure they're ready to withstand testing and much more.
