Beyond the accessibility and simplicity, the new metal 3D printing technology delivers other significant benefits as well. One example: Remove support structures by hand rather than machining them. Some of the advantages of the new metal 3D printing technology that was recently announced by Boston, Massachusetts-based Desktop Metal are implied within the very name of this company. The company’s new DM Studio system is indeed a metal AM system suitable for a desktop—and an office desktop at that. The powder-metal system can be used in an office because it requires none of the safety considerations typical of powder metal. It prints via FDM,...

Introduction Functional prototypes are a key step in product development - they give engineers a chance to test new ideas and designs while also revealing how the product will stand up to real-world use. And when it comes to functional prototypes, 3D printing is rewriting the rules of what’s possible. One of the most important changes made possible with printing relates to speed. Where it may take weeks or months for traditional manufacturing processes like casting and forging, 3D printers can turn out parts in just days. For manufacturers, that translates into the ability to create not just one or...

What is BMD? Bound Metal Deposition™ (BMD) is an extrusion-based metal additive manufacturing (AM) process where metal components are constructed by extrusion of a powder-filled thermoplastic media. Bound metal rods—metal powder held together by wax and polymer binder—are heated and extruded onto the build plate, shaping a part layer-by-layer. Once printed, the binder is removed via the debind process, and then sintered—causing the metal particles to densify. Prevalent metal AM technologies involve melting powder or wire feedstock using lasers or electron beams. While viable, these systems have substantial facilities requirements to accommodate power and safety requirements. Additionally, localized melting and rapid...
