White Paper: Analysis of Direct Manufacturing Metal 3D Printing

Direct Manufacturing promises a wide variety of metal additive manufacturing applications.

This 14-page report is a guide to best practices when designing 3D models for metal 3D prints such as:

i. Minimizing and optimizing necessary support structures
ii. Maximizing the natural support of the atomized metal powder that surrounds the printed component

Topics covered include:

  • Introduction to metal 3D printing: DMLS, EBM, extrusion and cold spray
  • Metal materials: Atomization, combining metal powders
  • How design affects performance: Angles, self-supporting features, no access features
  • Post processing for DMLS parts: Stress relief, secondary heat treatments, finishing.
