Default Video for 3d printer fans

I'm a bit behind the times when it comes to 3d printing and how the tech has moved forward, but this video is pretty cool.

I attended DMG Mori Seiki school in Chicago a couple months ago and got to see one of these in person. While I was there, they were developing a turbine blade on a prototype machine that cut 40% of the weight compared to a conventional blade. Lighter turbine=faster spin up and less horsepower needed.
