Hello NeXT Community: We are going to experiment with this , it is a game changer https://3dprintingindustry.com/news/now-can-print-metal-3d-printer-85255/ How cool will this be a mini metal cube, I'm going to research and see if they have a magnesium composite plastic to metal filament as this would open up not only the mini cube project but replacement or custom tailored modified parts for the cubes and slabs ! Smile


Aluminium composite will be a very expensive print, try just PLA , mine costed me 45, I quota 100% metal and it is really expensive

I got a quote of USD60~, which is very close to your 45.

Thanks for the pointer to 3dhubs.

I finally got around to printing this, just started and it will take quite awhile to print all of it. The biggest part took me almost 13 hours to print. Seems very nicely done.

I think I will probably try printing it again out of ABS before I get too carried away, it is harder to print but much easier to sand.

I do not have the super tiny .2mm nozzle she used for the one part, I tried it with my standard .4mm and was not to thrilled with it, the main cube parts printed OK but it will take a lot of work to smooth them out.
