01: PREP

Secure, web-based software constructs build plans from STL or CAD files, automatically generating supports and control parameters based on part geometry and material.

02: PRINT

Layer by layer, a green part is shaped by extruding bound metal rods – metal powder held together by wax and polymer binders – in a process called Bound Metal Deposition™

03: DEBIND

The green part is immersed in proprietary debind fluid, dissolving primary binder and creating an open-pore channel structure throughout the part in preparation for sintering.

04: SINTER

As the part is heated to temperatures near melting, remaining binder is removed and metal particles fuse together, causing the part to densify up to 96-99.8%
