I know they're rather new, but I was hoping for some details about the two new metal printing options; particle size, level of achievable detail, min wall thickness, sintering temps, post-working possibilities and experience, etc.

Even anecdotal info would be greatly welcomed, as I hope to produce some rather small & complicated items in either metal over the next few months.

I was initially planning to produce the designs in PMC silver from a silicone mould. Being able to go straight to steel would solve some serious strength issues, but being able to effectively work the piece to add detail and improve surface finish is critical.

Yes, I am keeping an eye on Whistler's new thread. Smile
