That seems unlikely, 3D printing is still not an efficient process compared to traditional manufacturing. There are also serious design limitations with green sintered parts and the final product is never 100% as strong or even the same size as expected.

Y'know, that might just be crazy enough to work!

They were discussing this in relation to parts which couldn't be manufactured in any other way and on thinking about it, that is one area that chainmaille parts seldom really suffer from.

So uneven shrinkage is an issue with 3D printed metal work? Kind of makes a mockery of showing a whole load of gear parts in that "documentary" then. Proper meshing is incredibly important when it comes to that kind of manufacturing.

Never trust anything in it's infancy. Very Happy

I think the shrinkage is predictable enough for many purposes but yeah those are not likely going to be precision gears.
