We are seeking to raise 40 million dollars over 5 years to build and develop a world class 3D Additive Manufacturing plant. Not just a world class plant but the worlds largest 3D Additive Manufacturing Factory to produce extremely LARGE aerospace systems parts made from Titanium, Tungsten steel and composite materials. That could reduce the costs of these parts by 80%.
