METAL 3D PRINTING PROCESS

Metal green part

Print

Launch your print from anywhere via MakerBot CloudPrint to your personal or team-shared METHOD 3D printer equipped with a LABS GEN 2 Extruder and BASF Ultrafuse 316L material.

60°C Circulating Heated Build Chamber
ensures maximum part density

Metal sintering part

Send in your green part

Once your “Green” part is complete, send it in to your sintering service provider such as Matterhackers where parts are debinded and sintered in a high heat, pure hydrogen atmosphere resulting in pure 316L Stainless Steel.

1380°C sintering temperatures
result in parts that can withstand 550°C

Metal procesed part

Receive solid metal part

You receive the solid steel part in as little as 5 days - up to half the time and ⅕ the cost of a typical 3D printing service bureau. Install the part as needed or incorporate with other printed parts in MakerBot composites and polymers for a more dynamic assembly.

Up to ½ the time and ⅕ the cost
of a leading metal 3D printing service

Metal 3D Printing Applications

Helix gear

HELICAL GEAR

Print time: 6h 33m

Gears within assemblies can have a seemingly infinite variety of sizes and teeth structures. Metal is typically the preferred material for gears due to the forces, temperatures, and abrasion that can occur.

15mm wrench

HELICAL GEAR

Print time: 2h 28m

This 15MM wrench is an example of a handheld or possibly end of arm tool that has been lightweighted to reduce the load on a technician or robotic arm - allowing either to apply additional force with reduced stress.

f1 wheel nut application 1

F1 WHEEL NUT

Print time: 25h 56m

The F1 wheel nut must withstand extreme force and temperature as it is exposed to peak racing conditions. It also must hold up during tire change to even more direct forces to avoid stripping - once again necessitating metal as the choice material.
