    Default Printing a rocket engine and fuel tank for NASA.

    This absolutely blew me away. MIT and Boston start-up printing Rocket engines for NASA. And they are going to produce a printer for manufacturing...BMW and Caterpillar.

    I'm almost speechless.

    That was worth the time to watch the video.
    Interesting to note that hobby grade printers peaked in 2014.
