Open-Source Metal 3D Printer, Nonplanar Nozzles and Tesla’s Model Y using 3D Prints

Lots of interesting topics this time! Tesla is apparently using last-minute 3D printed parts in the first Model Ys they delivered; Adrian Bowyer is proposing a novel print removal system; and the US Army has been working on a non-homogeneous 3D printing filament.

But Stefan and Tom haven’t been idle, either and have been working on the Toolchanger and on finally getting an old CNC working. All that and more in this episode of The Meltzone Podcast!
