After 3D printing its bronze-steel alloy, the researchers cut out a metal sample to test its various mechanical properties.

Researchers from Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, or Skoltech, in Moscow, Russia, have leveraged 3D printing to forge an unlikely union between one of Man's oldest known alloys, bronze, and one of its relatively newer discoveries, steel, that could be used to manufacture combustion chambers for aircraft and rocket engines.

This 3D-printed Skoltech alloy, simply named bronze-steel,...
