3ders.org - Indiegogo campaign launched to bring Mini Metal Maker 3D printer to the public | 3D Printer News & 3D Printing News | Heron | Scoop.it
Basically, David Hartkop's machine combines what is known as Precious Metal Clays (or PMC) with FDM 3D printing. His machine extrudes the metal clay just like a ceramic 3D printer extrudes regular clay, but this metal clay is essentially a blended liquid paste of metal parts with a consistency comparable to plastic filament.

Valveless Pulsejets 1.5 By Bruno Ogorelec

Valveless Pulsejets 1.5 By Bruno Ogorelec | Heron | Scoop.it

The real potential for the pulsejet has always been in its use as the combustor for a turbine engine,
rather than as an engine in itself.  Its ability to generate pressure gain is greatly multiplied in a high-
pressure environment.  Compared to the more usual constant-pressure combustor, it can either give
the same power with much smaller mechanical loss and lower fuel consumption, or much greater power
for the same amount of fuel.
