About Metal 3D Printing
Metal 3D Printing is a general term for a number of additive manufacturing technologies that use 3D CAD data to build a metal part layer by layer. The machine distributes even layers of metallic powder fused together by a high powered laser according to the CAD data, gradually forming the 3-dimensional part.
All major 3D printing machine manufacturers have their own technology name referring to metal 3D Printing. Therefore, it’s possible that you know this process as selective laser melting or direct metal laser sintering.
