  • Course details

    Learn budget-friendly techniques for additive manufacturing with metal. New technologies and rethinking of old ones have opened up the possibility of 3D printing with metal much more cheaply than before. This course explores options and tips to get started with filament-based metal 3D printing and related techniques. Learn about the printing process, available materials, and workflow steps: printing, debinding, sintering, and post-processing. Instructors Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron also include an overview of high-temperature and high-strength 3D printing alternatives, like composites and higher-strength plastics. The authors compare the costs and challenges of outsourcing versus in-house manufacturing, so you can decide which is right for you.

    Skills covered in this course

  • Metal 3D printing on a budget

    - [Joan] What if you could 3D print metal parts in an ordinary machine shop without breaking your budget? Recently, film and 3D printing, metal injection molding, and inkjet printing all have contributed to new ways of 3D printing directly in metal. - [Rich] One method creates filament of a mix of metal powder and plastics that can be printed on an ordinary 3D printer. When the plastic is melted out and the metal sintered you're left with a solid metal part. - [Joan] Other systems spray binders onto metal powders to create large number of parts in a similar way. - [Rich] The range of available metals is expanding quickly. An ecosystem to outsource selected parts of the process is taking shape. - [Joan] We're Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron, the co-founders of Nonscriptum LLC and authors of many books on 3D printing and related technologies. - [Rich] Join us as we explore these lower-cost metal 3D printing techniques.
