    As a long time, career weldor/fabricator, I can seriously say that I have used MIG to literally build new parts, and have bridged holes larger than my fist.

    This machine is junk. MIG is NOT the way to go for the deposition method. The industry is WAAAAAAAAAAAAY past this primitive attempt. For a glimpse at what is really out there, check this out ... Hybrid machine (3D printer and 5 axis milling-machine) - YouTube P.S. Sorry but the text is not English

    I need 5 million 1/2-13 hex head bolts x 2" long. Let's see if this machine can beat the current setup at 10 seconds each.
    Point is, this kind of machine would be a great addition to mfg, but does have limitations.

It eliminates the need for having a lathe and other machines.

    The cost savings from eliminating the machinist are huge. Several of these machines can be put to work in parallel increasing production while money is saved in labor costs by not hiring machinists. The projected cost is $3000 dollars, which is even cheaper than traditional mills.

    First a rought shape is 3d printed with mig wire like so:

    The part is machine as it is being 3d printed to end up with a part like this:

    Here is a prototype of the machine:

    Just thought I would let you know so you can start training and equipping your shop with these machines, or looking for another line of work.

    Well there's an argument that Spamming is moderately less offensive than Trolling and jsmith123 was definitely a Troll, as well as having no actual industry experience worth having ;-)

    But clearly it has to be machined. I'm confuzzled.
