Knife Maker Points to 3D Printing as Alternative Method of Craftsmanship

Knife Maker Points to 3D Printing as Alternative Method of Craftsmanship

48-year-old Stuart Mitchell has been making knives for most of his life, learning from his father as a child and using many of the same tools his parents used in the workshop they acquired in 1980. In recent years, however, Mitchell began to explore alternative methods of crafting knives, which led him to additive manufacturing […]

ATI Partners with GE Aviation to Develop Meltless Titanium Alloys for 3D Printing

Every metal used in manufacturing, and 3D printing in particular, has its unique benefits, but titanium is an especially popular material for a number of reasons. It’s the go-to metal for medical implants, thanks to its strength, light weight, corrosion resistance and biocompatibility, and those characteristics (minus the biocompatibility) also make it a highly desirable […]
