Kendall.  Thanks for getting back to me.  I was thinking of something similar to the way fiberglass panels are made with a metal mesh replacing the glass mesh.  Don't know if that is even practical or has been tried.  It just seemed like an interesting idea.

Kendall, we'd be very interested in 3D printing of this material, in addition to automotive uses. That sounds like my department. Can you please contact me about this?

Thanks,
