While conventional metal 3D printing processes are still not ready for mass adoption, new ones — like metal fused filament fabrication (metal FFF) — are accessible, affordable and easy-to-use. Various industries, from automotive to aerospace, have tapped into this adaptable technology to produce a myriad of functional parts. Metal FFF, which is based around metal injection molding (MIM), uses a three-step process: print, debind, and sinter. Markforged has built a holistic system to make the process simple and accessible to everyone.
This white paper takes a deep dive on the metal FFF process, examines Markforged’s approach to metal FFF, and key considerations when considering adopting the technology.
