3D Printing Metal
Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, has seen many improvements throughout the years. Of all the advances though, one thing remained the same, plastic. Printing in materials other than plastic is extremely costly as printers have to be made custom to handle the task — until now.
Filamet™ is a metal alternative to purely plastic 3D printing. It is 88.8% metal with the remaining being plastic, and this can be made 99% metal by heat processing it. This beat previous attempts to create metal 3D printers, which could cost you up to $1,000,000 and takes up to 48hrs to finish a model. Filamet is unique because of it's ability to be used in any 3D printer, making it extremely cost effective and faster.
