What is metal 3D printing?

Metal 3D printing is an additive manufacturing process that uses metals to produce parts and assemblies. It helps turn designs into scaled prototypes as close to the designed model. It is mainly used in the earliest stages of product development and can be used in conceptual models, functional prototypes, tooling, electronics, jewelry, and medical industries.

3D printing requires 3D CAD models to print a part or assembly. The 3D models can be made using parametric CAD software such as Solidworks and CATIA V5, or Subdivision modeling software such as 3DS and Blender.

Advanced 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing

What are the advantages disadvantages of 3D metal printing?

Metal 3D printing is used over plastic 3D printing processes due to:

- Harder results
- Can print in precious materials (Gold, Platinum, and silver)

There are some disadvantages to using Metal 3D printing:

- Higher cost of tooling and prints

How is it fabricated?

The 3D printer slices the 3D model into several cross sections and prints them layer by layer. At Norck, we offer the following 3D printing method for Metal parts/assemblies:

Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS):
Like SLS, direct metal laser sintering is a process that uses a laser to form the desired shape by fusing particles of metallic powder instead of plastic. In this process, a roller deposits layers of powder metal on the print bed, then the laser fuses powder metal particles on each layer.

Most used materials:
 •  Titanium
 •  Steel
 •  Stainless steel
 •  Aluminum
 •  Nickel
 •  Cobalt
 •  Copper
 •  Inconel
 •  Gold
 •  Platinum
 •  Silver

Parts and assemblies should follow specific design rules to be printed correctly. Norck offers engineering services that will help you confirm your design for 3D printing.
