At i.materialise this June is Metal Month. Last week they announced the possibility to gold plate your stainless steel designs and 10% discount for the whole month, again this week they have added bronze as a new 3D metal printing material.
"The manufacturing method is pretty much identical to that of stainless steel 3D printing", mentioned on i.materialise's blog.
Look at the photo below, this Lovebone necklace designed by Studio Mango is printed directly in bronze and infused with bronze. The price tag for this model is €41.11 excl. VAT, which is approximately $52.83.
As to the print size, since it is still in a trial phase, the company is offering 3D printing in bronze only on a 5 x 5 x 5 cm bounding box. The models can be delivered in both polished and unpolished bronze, and the pricing is only a little above the price range of a stainless steel model. They are still improving the technology at i.materialise, so there might be some changes before it is widely applied. Stay tuned!
