Moving to Metal

  • Joan Horvath


It is possible to 3D print in metal starting with a powder that is fused (sintered) by a laser or glued with a binder. As of this writing, this remains a very expensive process, and these are not desktop consumer printers. However, there are ways to move from a 3D print in plastic to a cast metal object relatively cheaply. 3D printing can make traditional prototyping processes faster and more efficient.
