This one has me a little confused.
They're talking about an advantage for American manufacturing, but the programing is open-source... Meaning anyone can legally get it, use it, and alter it to suit their needs.
They also say that it's strong and durable, but since they're using powder, it sounds an awful lot like what we call pot metal.
Pot metal is used a lot these days because it's cheap, but it's not as strong, or as durable as solid metal.
It's kind of like the difference between fiberboard and a real solid board of lumber.
Of course they tell the consumer that it's as good or better than lumber, but it's not.
You see it used in a lot of furniture and cabinets these days.
They laminate it to make it look good.
This idea looks good, but I'm not convinced they're being totally honest regarding strength and durability.
Maybe down the road the process will improve.
