Susanne Kahle's curator insight, July 23, 2013 11:09 AM

An interesting Indiegogo-Project (Origin: South Africa) instead of using plastic filament or powder the I-AM 3D uses ink or to be more specific inks in different compositions. Those compositions are supposed to allow 3D printing with several metal alloys (e.g. gold, platinum and maybe aluminium and titanium as well).
