Is that 45 hours per caliper or for the set? This would be ridiculously expensive at this point regardless.

Impressive! Was wondering when they would make a caliper out of titanium. Superior metal for this application due to low heat transfer. Expected billet CNC machined though.

Gotta tell Warren at RB to kick it up a notch! Lol

I was speaking to the guys at Finspeed and they mentioned how hard it was to keep the strength in a 3d printed metal component.

 

looks like they might have solved it
