Improve Your Performance with Metal

  • Explore the Best Metal 3D Printing Technologies

    3D Systems invented 3D printing. We produce hundreds of thousands of metal parts with our metal printers, metal materials and specialized software.

Benefits of Printing With Metal

  • High Repeatability

    Count on a printer architecture and workflow that generates proven high repeatability, build job over build job, printer over printer.

  • Lowest Oxygen Exposure

    Oxygen content consistently below 25ppm results in repeatable, high part quality and low TCO through almost full material usage and low Argon consumption.

  • Robust Material Databases

    Count on parameters thoroughly developed and tested by our material specialists and considerably cut the time to get your production up and running. 

  • Our Software Delivers Results

    Software is the key to transforming data from 3D scans, illuminating designs, and inspecting part quality, and is used every day to enable manufacturing for traditional and 3D-based manufacturing processes. Explore our end-to-end software portfolio today.

“We did some x-ray CT scans and have been impressed with the density of the part and the general surface quality.”
— Paul Booth, RF engineer for Airbus Defence and Space in Stevenage, United Kingdom
