Metal 3D Printing Success: Best Practice Design Guides & Video
Download our latest Design Guides for best practices in 3D printing of metal and composite parts for tooling (soft jaws, vice jaws), fixtures, and replacements. You can even print parts with complex geometries, such as shadows and holes. High performance, industrial 3D printing systems like the Markforged Metal X and X7 work are ideal for rapid prototyping and small batch requirements. They work with a variety of materials, including stainless steels, tool steels (A2, D2, H13), superalloys (Inconel), non-ferrous metals (copper, titanium), as well as composites (carbon fiber, fiberglass, Kevlar).
- Design Guide for Metal 3D Printing discusses material selection, optimizing for printing, modifying overhangs to optimize supports, washing parts, reducing stress concentrations for sintering, machining and polishing sintered parts, and more.
- Design Guide for Composite 3D Printing discusses material needs and behaviors, part design, continuous fiber fabrication, assessing properties of composite parts, fiber reinforcement, loading conditions, dimensions, surface area, overhangs, printer bandwidth, validating geometries, and more.
