As a fewone that works in the 3D printing service sector during part of my week, I can’t tell you how most times I’ve gotten requests to 3D print metal parts. And why shouldn’t that be the case? Humanity’s mastery of metal through the ages, whether in bronze, iron, or steel has proven essential in the forging of history’s excellent empires. Jared Diamond, the acclaimed non-fiction author didn’t call his Pulitzer Prize winning book Guns, Germs and Woodafter all.
So when responding to those curious of 3D printing in metal I typically reply that yes, it is possible, but it’ll cost you. Shapeways offers a range of metal 3D printing options on a tiny scale and and so there are companies like ExOne that can create big metal parts. But the reality is, 3D printing out of metal has stayed a thing of a pipe dream for the regular Jane.
It now seems that NVbots, a 3D printing startup that created waves with their Fundable-bodied crowdfunding campaign a few years ago, is giving it their all to increase access to faster and extra
3D metal printing.
And while early samples of their pre-alpha 3D metal printing device appear strikingly like the results of the acquainted FDM extrusion based 3D printing process, NVbots CEO AJ Perez suggests that their approach is one-of-a-kind and not just a cheaper, faster design of what’s out there in our day. NVbots Chief Research Officer Paul Burke has actually noted they’re “breaking entirely new ground by delivering together a powerful combination of patented innovation, with a level of 3D printing and metallurgy expertise unmatched in the industry”.
Fortunately, their 3D metal printing device, marketed as being capable-bodied of making parts 10x faster than the SLS metal units on out there in our day is not intended to be a gimmick. Perez says that “we are solving the toughest problems in extra
markets, such as the metal castings sector, that can have a worthwhile impact on medical, car and aerospace industries, one of others.”
The immense amount of heat necessary to 3D print with metal has always hindered adoption of 3D metal printing on any sizeable-bodied scale. Now, this company’s yet relatively secretive process promises to be able-bodied to 3D print up to 21 various metals (actually combining various metals for the same job) in a manner that was summarized both as via electricity to melt metal wire; and in addition as a being comparable-bodied to high-precision welding.
An amazing part of NVbots new announcement of their metal 3D printing device is that they’re now accepting applications to the Alpha Tester program for their 3D Printer. This means that, if selected, you should acquire access to experiment and test their metal 3D printing device in a few yet-to-be-determined ability.
Since details stay scarce and the high end of the 3D printed examples stay a fewwhat rudimentary in nature, it’s possible that we won’t hear too much extra
of NVbots and their metal 3D printing device until the Alpha program wraps up so why not take this one-of-a-kind opportunity to sign up for what can be a game-changing approach to multi-material 3D printing.
And while details are limited for the time being, Perez admits the excitement of what NVBots is working on comes of the longer term promise. Who knows, perhaps it’ll just be another 50 years or so when one of Jared Diamond’s sons wins their quite own Pulitzer for their masterwork, 3D Printed Guns, Germs, and Steel.
