The principle is to print a 3D object like a normal plastic part and then after printing apply a second process of de-binding and sintering where the part is baked into a high temperature oven (sintering process), burning away the plastic and leaving only the metal.
- Increase the adoption of FDM metal by reducing the poor tolerances and inconsistent results.
- Generating object specific data to guide the full process.
- Automating and tracking the process as much as possible.
- Improve the reliability of the solution by making the 3D printers more robust to FDM metal.
