Metal 3D printing, or metal additive manufacturing, is poised to drive the 3D printing industry in the coming decade. It not only attracts attention from industry leaders, conglomerates, and governments but also sees a lot of investment, innovation, and research.
With the invention of novel technologies, new material development and qualification, and continuous improvements and enhancements in the supporting software solutions right from designing, build preparation, monitoring, scheduling, and post-processing.
All these improvements are leading Metal additive manufacturing to the digitalization of the manufacturing activities. But such professional technology is hard to learn for beginners and hardly any comprehensive or free resources are available to get educated.
So Manufactur3D is coming up with a “Getting Started with Metal 3D Printing” series of articles that address these concerns. Through this series we aim to cover topics like metal additive manufacturing technologies, metal am materials, software, and education.
Through this article, we explain everything users need to know about Metal 3D Printing. We will explain the entire metal 3D printing ecosystem.
METAL 3D PRINTING/METAL ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
Metal 3D printing first originated in the early 1990s through the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology – …
