Quote:
Usually an omen for restaurant closures and pending health violations, e. coli has gotten a bad reputation as an infectious bacteria that causes food poisoning symptoms in so many unfortunate victims. Recently however, a group of undergraduates at the UK’s Newcastle University tweaked the bacteria and reimagined it as an innovative tool to create a bacteria-based lightbulb.

Why is this groundbreaking?
The Filamet essentially turns any low cost printer into a metal printer.
As a result of the high percentage you can either process prints with heat to remove the 10% plastic, or you can go straight from the printer to buffing to create a print that’s nearly indiscernible from pure metal.
The heavyweight industrial Filamet has also proven strong enough to block certain types of radiation. That means that companies and individuals can now print tailored shields to protect against potentially harmful rays.

Quote:
Announced at IMTS on the 12th of September, Ingersoll Machine Tools is forming a partnership with Oak Ridge National Laboratory to develop WHAM. Wide and High Additive Manufacturing, or WHAM, will be a very large AM system featuring targeted laydown rates of 1,000 lb/hr on a build envelop of 23 ft wide by 10 ft high by 46 ft long, which is massive.
The machine would represent an order of magnitude increase in speed and size over current large-format additive manufacturing systems. They could be commercially available sometime in the next 18-24 months.

Interesting, but it seems to be limited to polymer materials.
