New Technology Makes Any 3D Printer a Metal 3D Printer

June 21, 2018

The Virtual Foundry, based in WI, is marketing a new metal 3D printing system that dramatically reduces the entry cost of 3D metal printing. Their technology makes any existing 3D printer a metal 3D printer. 

After three years of development with partners and customers in aerospace, petroleum, injection molding, dentistry, education and nuclear energy, The Virtual Foundry is now shipping turnkey debinding and sintering systems that let any size shop print metal in their existing plastics 3D lab, or inexpensively set up a new metal lab.

 The Virtual Foundry’s flagship line of materials, called Filamet, is compatible with FFF/FDM printers, the most common type of 3D printer. The Virtual Foundry has also begun partnering with manufacturers of industrial grade 3D printers to co-market its products. 

“Our open architecture strategy means that as 3D-printing technology improves, so does the final product created with Filamet,” says Bradley Woods, founder of The Virtual Foundry.
