3D Metal Printing

Print E-mail

We are offering an exciting new prototyping technology called 3D Metal Printing through one of our qualified partners.

3D Metal Prototype
Complex shapes:
   - Curves, undercuts, spirals, angled internal features
Internal cooling channels (useful for injection molds)
Jigs, Fixtures
Artistic models

How it Works:
The prototyping system spreads out thin layers of metal powder and fuses together the appropriate sections of each layer over and over until a 3-D model is generated. The powder model is then cured in an oven to become a strong, solid metal object.

Min/Max Dimensions:
29 x 15 x 15 inches maximum
0.08 inches (2 mm) minimum wall thickness
0.01 inches (0.25 mm) thin features (such as raised text)
Dimensional Tolerance: 0.005" (0.13 mm) for medium size parts

Cost: $35-55 per cubic inch of material used* ($2.10-3.30 per cc)
Polishing: Add $5 per part
Minimum: $150
* Tip: Save money by designing your bigger models as hollow shells (0.1-inch walls) with a 0.2-inch drain hole on the bottom.

Lead Time:
2-3 weeks (4-5 weeks around Christmas time)

Material Properties:
Material: Stainless Steel (420) and Bronze Alloy
Ultimate Tensile Strength: 99 KSI (682 MPa)
Yield: 66 KSI (455 MPa)
Modulus: 21.4 MPSI (147 GPa)
Elongation: 2.30%
Hardness: 20-25 HRc
Density: 90-95%
Features: It is magnetic; it is weldable
