This guide will help inspire and inform your decisions when designing for DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) 3D printed parts.
Xometry offers DMLS in both 17-4 stainless steel and lightweight aluminum alloy (AlSi10Mg).
Combine assemblies comprised of multiple components into a single, lightweight, printed part– all while retaining or exceeding the robustness of the original assembly.
The freedom to design and manufacture complex geometries and intricate interior structures is one of the great promises of additive manufacturing. 3D printing technologies allow you to create parts impossible to manufacture any other way. Think outside the box!
Like all additively manufactured parts, there’s no custom tooling or mold making involved, so your parts are made on-demand. It is an even faster alternative to CNC machining.
The final product is comparable to a metal casting in terms of fit and finish, and can be post-processed like any other metal part.
Unique to Xometry, we can build aluminum 3D printed parts up to 6″ x 6″ x 6″, and stainless steel up to 9" x 6" x 6". We're among the few manufacturers in the US with this capability.
