Advantages

  • End-Use Parts

    Strong, ultra-dense prints make metal printing perfect for end-use parts.

  • Complex Geometry

    Easily produce geometries too complex to make using traditional manufacturing techniques.

  • Fast Turnaround

    Since 3D printed metal doesn’t require tooling, part turnaround times are reduced from months to days.

  • Simplify Assemblies

    Print complex assemblies in a single run.
