I can envision a powered metal 3d printer where the parts are designed to be sintered in the oven after "manufacture".

Pick your alloy.

They have kind of been doing that for a while, actually.

They sinter them with a laser as they deposit them. That's pretty expensive right now, but I remember paying $400 for 4K of memory that took up a large S-100 bus card. I expect this to follow Moore's law.
