We're working the bugs out of one of our new printing products.
This is a 3D print of a bottle with lid used for transporting radioactive medicine. Once tuned in, we will have a 3D printing filament that is equal (or very close to) the density of pure lead.
This print is about 94% metal by mass. It's made with tungsten, which is 1.6 times heavier than lead. The whole point of this product is weight, to make the heaviest filament humanly possible. It will be used mostly in radiation management, vibration control and counterweights, marketed under a brand name that already has traction as an injection moldable, super high mass material.
Test, tune, repeat. Almost there.
This print weighs about a half pound. The container is 8.4cm high without the lid and 8.7cm with it. The outer diameter measures 4cm.
