What is Metal 3D Printing?

Produce complex parts without the design constraints of traditional manufacturing routes

Metal 3D printing, or selective laser melting (SLM), combines the design flexibility of 3D printing with the mechanical properties of high-performance metal alloys to create unique, strong, and lightweight parts, even for the most complex applications.

Metal Additive Manufacturing offers the possibility to produce complex parts without the design constraints of traditional manufacturing routes. The ability to selectively deposit materials only where they are needed means that parts can be much more complex in design, and lighter weight, which can dramatically improve performance.

BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH

BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH is an ideal stainless steel for high-strength and stiff parts. It is also capable of withstanding the harshest operating conditions thanks to its excellent corrosion and heat resistance.

These properties are achieved through a proven catalytic debinding and sintering process used for traditional metal injection molding.

BASF Forward AM Ultrafuse® 17-4 PH

Post-processing

Each Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit includes a voucher toward post-processing your 3D print into a full metal part within 10 business days.

This is possible via BASF's network of certified debinding and sintering services. Via an online portal, you can book your part's post-processing on the calendar and check in on your part's progress at any time.

Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit Processing

Software

The Ultimaker Metal Expansion Kit unlocks extra features inside the Ultimaker Cura 5 engine.

These make metal print preparation simpler – automatically and accurately compensating for shrinkage that happens during sintering across all axes. You gain better control over your part and increased metal print success.
