Metal 3D Printing Overview

Metal 3D printing is a method of additive manufacturing that can allow some metal parts to be built more quickly and efficiently. Xometry offers both direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) and metal binder jetting options to create a metal prototype and production parts on demand. Metal 3D prints benefit from not requiring any tooling and the ability to produce highly complex features that may be cost-prohibitive or impossible to make with traditional metal casting or CNC machining.

DMLS, also known as DMLM, uses a laser to selectively fuse a fine metal powder building the part from the ground up. Metal binder jet uses a selectively deposited binding agent to hold the metal powder in a 3-dimensional shape, known as a green part, which is then post-processed in a furnace to achieve its final properties. This allows for the production of parts with very complex geometries, such as integrated fastening features, custom contours, and metal lattice structures. Using metal 3D printing allows for the production of assemblies in a single part form, reducing the number of parts, assembly time, and opportunity for failures. Additionally, since metal 3D printed parts do not require tooling, the initial part manufacturing lead time can be reduced from months to days.

      Applications of Metal 3D Printing

      Rapid tooling

      Rapid Tooling

      3D printed metal parts are widely used for rapid tooling, fixtures, and jigs.

      Fast parts and fast shipping

      Rapid Prototyping

      Make proof of concept models and fully functional late-stage prototypes in days.

      Digital manufacturing

      Direct Digital Manufacturing

      Cast-quality finish and durable materials have made metal 3D printing a favorite technology for end-use products.

      Advantages of Metal 3D Printing

      • Complex Geometries: Produce parts that cannot be made using traditional manufacturing techniques such as lattices or complex curvature
      • Strength: Build parts in metal with strong mechanical and dynamic properties, making it perfect for end-use parts
      • Efficiency: Metal 3D printing defies traditional design-for-manufacturing guidelines, so designs that would typically be made in assemblies can be made in a single piece
      • Rapid Turnaround: Metal 3D printed parts do not require tooling which reduces the manufacturing lead time from weeks to days
