The software accepts native CAD file formats–not just STL. Web-based, it runs on a remote or local server so that it is possible to manage jobs from any device securely.
Similar to FDM, the Studio printer shapes a “green” part layer-by-layer by heating and extruding specially formulated bound metal rods. The green part can be easily sanded by hand.
3. DEBIND AND SINTER
A portion of the plastic binder is first removed. The furnace then heats the part to temperatures near melting, causing the metal powder to densify to 96-99.8%.
4. POST PROCESS
Apply optional finishing methods such as machining or bead blasting for critical tolerances and finishes. Supports are removed by hand.
