Reducing the Buy-to-Fly Ratio with Metal 3D Printing
Is most of your purchased metal going to scrap?
Metals are expensive. When you machine away material from a block to produce complex parts, much of the metal you paid for is going to scrap. There’s a costly imbalance between the weight of the metal you purchased and the metal that constitutes your final “flying” component.
