Wondering what the difference say between printing a 9" x 1" x 5/16" bar of SS versus using the real thing. Application is a folding chair where some leveraged load will be applied against it. Just wondering if youd say the printed SS can bear loads 90% the same as a solid bar or 50% or 20%... Is it totally not the same material strengthwise when placing leveraged loads on it?

Say you screw 4" to a board and load the end significantly. Will the solid SS bar far outlast the Printed one?

General answers are great, I just have no conception of its differences.
