    Post 3D printing Capstone project

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum but a few group members and I are working on our senior ME capstone project at UofL Speed School of Eng.. We are currently in the market research phase of our project.. If you guys please could fill out this quick survey to help us get a better understanding of what you guys really want out of your printers, it would be really helpful

    Our project is trying to design a modular attachment that will allow for the extrusion of low melting metal allows out of an FDM printer, we still must work out many of the kinks of this and this is the first step.. thank you guys

    Let me know if I should add any questions to the survey.

    Your question would I rather print in metal of PLA is a bad question. I would want to print in the material needed for the application. Material properties and use would make all the difference. I would not print a metal part for the handle of a screw driver however the blade needs to be metal. Art pieces could be either again depending on the finish and colors desired. I would not want to print anything in metal if the metal were toxic like lead. Also if the metal has poor mechanical or thermal properties why would I use it in place of some of the very good plastics.
