Drew Prindle/Digital trend What do you get when you combine additives with subtraction manufacturing? No, it\'s not a math problem that adds up to zero, it\'s an impressive one -- Hybrid computer- Controlled milling machines and metal 3D printers, presented at CES this week by startup 3D. The creation promise of Ability3d is called a 888 3D printer ( Or at least hope) Bring about an alternative to laser The process of melting powder used by most metal 3D printers. Instead, it uses the MIG welder to process customized metal pieces from aluminum, steel or stainless steel, while also providing users with a model of melting deposition of conventional extruded print heads (FDM)3D printing. Oh, did we mention it would be a good fit -- Or at least nextyour desktop? MORE: This 3D printer builds the circuit with silver nanoparticles while floating in half air. If you also don\'t plan to make all your parts in metal, don\'t worry: it can obviously grind and perform many more regular 3D- The way printing works makes it a catch All solutions to meet all your additive manufacturing needs. \"The printer I designed was able to be used by anyone in any environment,\" Ben Willard, the creator who worked at NASA, told Digital Trends. \"The whole design is made of metal to contain welding sparks, and there is a complete vacuum to collect all the pieces of metal in the trim operation so that there will be no messy pieces of metal. The unit is also fully sealed and is negative- The pressure blower will safely remove all welding gases and smoke from the Mini \"The dryer came out of a nearby window \". In addition, the software we are developing for the hybrid 3D printing process is very simple and intuitive: just place a 3d model in it, position the part, select some settings, press the print button, after a few hours, your character will sit in the box waiting for you. \"The last attraction of the puzzle is that the 888 3D printer is much cheaper than the metal 3D printing replacement already used in the factory. How cheap? Well, according to its creators, the device will be sold for less than $3,000. After CES, the next step is the campaign to raise extra funds from Kickstarter, which will take place early this year. CES is not the first place to see a 888 3D printer. Its creators have been touring other venues, such as manufacturer Orlando, although its presence at one of the world\'s largest consumer electronics fairs must be its highest -- Personal data outing so far. Overall, it sounds exciting. As long as it works as described, we should enjoy it when it finally starts shipping to customers. You can focus on its progress on the company\'s website and on digital trends, where we will reveal many interesting things The entire 2017 3D printer.
