Desktop Metal Studio Solution

By | November 1st, 2017|

Additive Manufacturing of metals originated in the early 1990's through a process known as direct metal laser sintering. This process uses laser toolpaths to weld powdered metals into three dimensional parts. While effective, the technology has major barriers to entry due to the volatile nature of metal powders. These powders are reactive and can cause [...]
