Ultrasonic welding for 3D printing.  Heat stays below 200 deg F so they do things like embedding fiber optics and electronics into the part.  Also, they can make parts using dissimilar metals.

Interesting presentation from Desktop Metal on how their “nature based” part design software works.  The idea is to take advantage of 3D printing to build parts optimized for function without regard to machine tool constraints.  This creates bone like designs that look organic.
