MIT researchers have developed a groundbreaking 3D-printing method using liquid metal, making it possible to create large aluminum parts in minutes instead of hours.

Known as liquid metal printing (LMP), the process directs molten aluminum along a set path into a bed of tiny glass beads, solidifying into a 3D structure rapidly. Sacrificing some resolution for speed and scale, LMP is ideal for making furniture parts, chair frames and components for construction where extremely fine detail is not crucial.

The technology is promising for applications in construction and industrial design.
