3D-printing is gradually becoming part of our modern day lexicon, and as of this week it appears a new species of this technology making its debut. It’s known as “3D-painting” and the ingenious technology was created by the wizards at General Electric. What’s the purpose of it, you might ask? 3D-painting machines spray metal powders at broken parts and machines with extremely high velocity. The metallic spray builds up in precise computer-drawn forms on the object in need of fixing, with the repair jobs taking just a few minutes and completely eliminating the need for welding. Although nowhere nearly as revolutionary as its incredible big brother, the 3D-printer, 3D-painting “cold spraying” most definitely has its important place at the table of cutting edge technology as well.
